Florence House, Bristol

This contemporary kitchen extension is all about light and connection with the garden. The simple flat roof allows full height glazing to wrap around and open out onto a new raised decking area.

The proposed rear extension replaces a former narrow Victorian lean-to. Raising the eaves maximises the feeling of space in the kitchen, and connection to the deck and garden. A large rectangular roof-light to the rear helps to flood the deep plan with even more light. Bespoke joinery throughout, including a breakfast bar, make it perfect for family living. The bay windows were also replaced with matching bifold doors to unify the rear elevation.
