The lower ground floor has been made a simple and elegant space. Firstly a side return extension wasn added to form a simple rectangular floor plan. The space was then divided into three sections for living, kitchen and dining. The division is achieved through the siting of a large feature kitchen island, being the same length as the stairs down to the basement and the kitchen wall units, thereby forming a distinct central kitchen zone, with dining to the garden side and living to the street side. The architecture of the space also helps to define the dining area with a large roof light above the dining table, formed in the roof to the extension.
