The project at Cumberlands is a modest extension to a 1960’s detached villa set in an estate in Surrey. The original house has a wonderful open plan, split level living and dining space, but the kitchen was very small and not practical for the way in which the clients lived. The brief was to create an extension in keeping with the existing property to contain a large open plan kitchen and living space that would connect well with the garden, and the existing spaces living room, allowing the client a more flexible lifestyle. The project was completed in March 2011 by Guildcrest Construction Ltd.
