Proposal for a large Edwardian house we are working on in Muswell Hill. Internal alterations and refurbishment address problems with the existing ground floor layout and maximise the potential for modern family living. Key to the proposals is the enlargement of the kitchen, which is relocated to achieve a better connection with the dining room, and directly adjoin a new playroom. The playroom is a multifunctional space that can evolve with the family. The insertion of new glazing provides it with a strong connection with the garden and, along with a new opening into the kitchen, creates a line of sight all the way through from the front door. New fitted joinery throughout allows for de-cluttering and provides a coherent language the ground floor rooms.
