This pavilion at the rear of the large Edwardian house faces directly west, a striking colourful screen was devised to filter the heat load, views to neighbouring properties, provide privacy and to animate interior spaces with a lovely warm afternoon glow through the coloured glass louvres.
The copper clad building was designed to graft onto the existing red brick structure in a complementary yet contemporary way.
A linear 35 metersuspended light fixture spans from the entry hall of the existing house through the new kitchen to the rear garden in order to dramatically link the interiors of old and new.
The new kitchen was floated in the middle of the ground floor space in order to create separate living and dining zones while still maintaining an open spatial flow.
