Extension to a traditional country home in Mereworth with an emphasis on forming a connection to the grounds and creating a home that embodies classic rural design paired with modern comforts - Complete
Our brief was to extend a picturesque country house to accommodate the whole family all the while retaining its charm & character. The priority for the design was to allow as much natural light as possible to flood the space, with a strong emphasis on family spaces that facilitated comfort, hobbies and work.
From the Designer, ‘This is an exciting project for us as it facilitates so many of our ideals; the importance of natural light on our well being, & the value of family spaces, for both social & quiet times.’
‘With an emphasis on natural light, we set about orientating the rooms according to the orientation of the site towards the sun; the breakfast room features oversized floor to ceiling doors looking East for the morning sun, the Kitchen & large open plan areas face South utilising solar gains to help heat the space in the winter months, & the piano room looks West towards the stables for the setting of the evening sun.’
