Making light
work beautifully

Project type:
Rear kitchen extension

Chris – Richmond, Surrey

Project in a nutshell
A large rear extension filled with light creating a very generous open-plan kitchen, dining and family space.

• 7m wide, three-section sliding door
• 3m aluminium roof lantern

More about the project
Delivering this project started with the demolition of a very old conservatory, remodelling work, as well extensive structural works including the removal of a chimney and two 7m load bearing walls.

We worked alongside the client to source all finishes from our trade suppliers, including the flooring, kitchen and paving.

The centrepiece: a 7m wide, three-section, sliding door and 3m aluminium roof lantern. This level of glazing floods the entire space with light beautifully.

The two door sightlines are just 35mm wide ensuring there is maximum glass and minimum frame.

Sliding doors and roof lanterns of this specification can be really expensive, but the volume we buy from our aluminium supplier ensures this cost is kept in check.

After building 100+ extensions we saw a common problem that our customers
encountered: visualising the overall space and the key finishes.

So we did something about it. Over 18 months we developed, refined and built our own CGI and VR technology.

Our VR service creates what appears to be a life size, 3D virtual environment without the boundaries we usually associate with TV or computer screens.

You’ll be able to see different options for kitchen styles, bifold or sliding doors, flooring and paint colours
