Tansley, Derbyshire

Our client’s front door opened directly into their kitchen. They wanted a porch, but, in their own words, “an interesting one”.

We looked at the house and the garden. There was an interesting view which the house design failed to capture, and an attractive tree on the front lawn.

We designed the porch to frame the new view with an angled wall opening up the space until it was big enough to fit a dining table. The angled wall means that the roof dips into the corner; this leaves a view of the tree from the house as well as the garden.

A large section of patent glazing over the kitchen window means that the space remains light and sunny.
