Jude Tugman of architectural services company Architect Your Home explains how the brief was achieved:

‘This house was in need of a complete refurbishment, so the brief was to extend and reconfigure the existing ground floor to create a large family space, as well as adding an extra bedroom upstairs.

‘Most of the additional space that the homeowner wanted downstairs was found by remodelling the existing rooms, and therefore the size of the extension itself was fairly small. Adding two sets of doors has enabled direct access to the garden from the extended dining and living areas.’
