Extension to a Victorian Family Home O ur clients appointed Croft Architecture to come up with a design concept that would replace the rarely used old outbuildings, garages and dated lean-to at the rear of the property with a modern, light-filled, open plan home extension, creating a design solution that responds to the needs of the family, at work, rest and play, for now, and in the foreseeable future. Our clients enjoy cooking and spend a lot of time in the kitchen, therefore they aspired for the kitchen to be enjoyable, functional and the focal point on their newly extended home. They also wanted direct access to the new space from the rear of the property to be able to unload their shopping into the kitchen. BY: WILL MCAVOY 20
