This very late Victorian/Edwardian house represented a challenge for Moon, to design new space that linked two existing spaces without really changing either. Bar decoration and the floor, the kitchen remained unchanged, and the dining room was rewarded with a new set of doors. The extension itself was an exercise in light, with a wall of slender steel windows and a rooflight making the inside feel like out. The external walls and roof were clad in slate, and the interior was clad in stained ply. The unifying floor extended into the existing kitchen and hallway, ensuring continuity from the front door to the back garden.
