Family Kitchen and Dining Room- Twickenham, west London

A multi-purpose kitchen, dining space and family room as part of a large ground floor extension…

The Brief:
Our role was part of a larger building project where the client had already done a large ground floor rear extension. They wanted to achieve a beautiful, practical family kitchen; a dining area; TV area; office space. As well as having space to entertain, cook and enough room for the children to play. Storage, as with many families, was another important aspect.

The Style:
We wanted to achieve a vibrant, family space to be enjoyed both day and night. The lighting was very important so we decided to introduce various layers of light including a striking LED recessed light strip; which, in the evening, is reflected in the bi-fold doors, making the room feel even bigger. There are task downlights in the kitchen area, as well as decorative pendants over the breakfast bar. There are also decorative cube lights in the central light well which add extra interest and a great effect reflected off the glass and the walls.
