The 194-square-foot addition by Novak Hiles Architects features an open-plan kitchen and dining area that connects to a split-level garden.
London-based couple Ben and Jess approached architect Adam Hiles, director of local firm Novak Hiles Architects, for a solution to the dark and inconveniently arranged rooms on the ground floor of the terraced Arts and Crafts home where they live with their daughter and cat, Cosmo.
“The downstairs of the property had an awkward arrangement of small rooms which were functionally compromised and lacked natural light,” says the architect. “There was very little space for family dining, and the kitchen was cut off from the rest of the house.”
The family wanted a space where they could socialize with each other and friends while feeling more connected to the garden. With this in mind, Hiles proposed a contemporary extension that incorporates subtle nods to the original Arts and Crafts design of the three-bedroom residence.
