The awkwardly shaped site was occupied by array of irregular outbuildings. These have been replaced with rational and spacious kitchen and dining facilities. A glass link forms the dining area and articulates the junction between the original house and the new kitchen extension. As well as flooding the space with natural light, the screen

provides great enjoyment of the garden and distant hills, even on a gloomy day. The overall use of high quality natural materials allows the extension to sit comfortably in surroundings that absorb its presence more and more as time passes, whilst the use of modern construction methods affords the light and tranquil living environment.
