A Bespoke Kitchen ExtensionPublished on 8th July 2017
This bright, modern Huddersfield kitchen diner has been opened up by a bespoke glass and aluminium structural design by Apropos. Here’s how we did it!
Our client wanted a kitchen that was multi-functional, highly contemporary and fully adaptable for exploiting the adjoining patio and garden for family and social use. The resulting design consists of one house-wide extension that consists of two clearly defined glass features consisting of separate aluminium bi-folding doors and glazed roofs.
The first extension measures 1.6 metres wide x 3.65 metres long, and incorporates a five-door bi-folding door system and sloping glazed roof.
The second extension measure 1.6 metres wide x 2.27 metres long, and incorporates a three-door bi-folding door system with a similar glazed roof.
The design is completed by a matching aluminium double door system in the same elevation.
Pilkington’s Activ self-cleaning and solar control glass is used throughout the structures, and trickle vents are also incorporated to aid ventilation.
The completed design allows brightness to flood into the kitchen-cum-diner and enhance the white kitchen units and worktops. Furthermore, the use of a non-standard Apropos structure colour (RAL 8019 ‘grey brown’) perfectly matches the contrasting brown units in the kitchen.
The use of bi-folding doors means the kitchen-cum-dining room can be fully opened up for family and guests on warm, sunny days, thereby maximising the inflow of light and air into the room, whilst allowing the client exploit al fresco living to the full.
This high-spec, contemporary design by Apropos adds a cutting-edge finish to the new kitchen diner, providing a highly desirable living space for the client.
A similar project by Apropos would cost approximately £30,000 (including VAT and installation, excluding building works).Return to Blog
