Meet last year's winner

James Hewitt and Pamela Sampson spent hours researching every element of their kitchen extension, combining reclaimed and vintage pieces to create a striking finish.

Renovation expert Michael Holmes, a judge on last year's panel, said: ‘This is a fantastic example of how a contemporary extension can complement a Victorian property. The Crittall-style glazing and electronic rooflight are key design features that set this project apart.'
