Stoke Newington House,
Material Works were commissioned to design a a small addition to this victorian terraced house in Stoke Newington, London.
With a limited budget and limited space for building in, the challenge was to transform the existing dark and cramped kitchen space into a bright and open space that would cater to the needs of a growing family.
To achieve this an extensive roof light was installed above the new addition and the rear wall opened up with large sliding doors above a new window seat.
A careful coordination of the restricted space allowed for the inclusion of a kitchen island while still leaving space for a dining table. The robust polished concrete floor was offset by the use of natural oak joists to support the roof-light and form the window seat, creating an aesthetic that was at once both contemporary, practical and welcoming.
