As the cottage is Grade II-listed, the homeowners and designer had to work with the local planning department to find a suitable solution that would respect the original cottage.

The idea was to create a glass box that wouldn’t change the original home, but at the same time, add a unique design aspect to the home.

The glass extension houses the home’s new kitchen, a Bulthaup kitchen, that has plenty of storage and places for bar seating.
