No kitchen extension is just an island.

Kitchen Extension | Architect for Camden | Belsize Park, North West London

A new outrigger extension is required to replace the original kitchen extension which was not appropriately sized for a large semi-detached six bedroom house. A new form is explored to avoid the typical full width extension.  A series of angled facets  is explored and developed further to define an original form for the new kitchen extension. The facets provide a notional subdivision of the kitchen and define the preparation, washing and breakfast areas and aim to respond to and respect its sensitive garden setting in terms of material, language, form and construction. The inclined form rises to the garden to provide a natural shading device from the sun and drops to the rear against the neighbouring adjacent extension.
