What have you done?
We wanted to change the layout and the size of the house without changing its character as we felt really strongly about keeping the country cottage feel. however, there were restrictions in the area and we had to ask permission to make changes to the outside of the house. We were not allowed to add any more windows in the original section of the house, so we replaced the old steel Crittall windows with double-glazed replicas, instead.

How did you change the layout of the house?
We opened up the original part of the ground floor and added a large conservatory. It’s max’s favourite room in winter and the family’s favourite in summer. The kitchen was enlarged to about double its original size, because it was really important for us to be able to eat and socialise in there. In fact, the kitchen became the starting point to plan the whole extension.

The octagonal table was designed first and the rest of the kitchen was planned around it by taking into consideration the way we like to cook. Bruno is the chef of the family and there is usually a crowd of the kids’ friends sitting in the kitchen while he’s making dinner, so a spacious kitchen is exactly what we were looking for when we moved. Bruno chose the Wolf range cooker and the other appliances were bought to complement it.

We’ve moved every five or six years since we married, so we have learnt a few lessons from previous kitchens. our trial-and-error approach has paid off – it finally feels like we’ve cracked it with this room.
