House alterations at Trinity


The upgrading of part of a Victorian house, converting a small kitchen and outhouse into a family kitchen and dining area. The structure was simplified to make an open plan space, into which new kitchen units and general storage were added. The blue units are arranged so that they can be  'open', linking kitchen and dining spaces, or 'closed' to define the dining room as a discrete space. Red wall panels in the dining area make the room proportions more intimate. The alterations also included converting a ground floor bedroom to make it wheelchair accessible, with a new ensuite shower room and kitchenette, and direct access to the rear garden.
