Reconstructed ground floor 'flow'
By implementing a clever design, this Richmond home has successfully created a more spacious environment, offering distinct areas for relaxation, dining, cooking, and quality time together. The risk of overcrowding has been eliminated, providing ample room to breathe. The addition of sliding doors and an angled fixed panel has expanded the width and height of the rear glazing, allowing for an abundance of natural light to flood the space. This infusion of light creates an inviting and airy atmosphere that persists throughout the day. The side extension effectively increases the property’s size, optimizing both the space and the flow of the house. Transforming the rear reception into a WC and playroom makes practical use of the typically challenging space, utilizing the darker sections of the ground floor without requiring significant natural light.
