British architecture firm Russian For Fish, has designed the expansion and remodel of a traditional Victorian house in London, for a family who wanted to enhance its connection to the garden, and create a kitchen where they could come together to dine.

 

Over the course of six months, they widened the building’s rear to create more space, and used reclaimed brick for the re-positioned walls to create a seamless join.

Dissolving the boundary between the outdoors and the indoors are a set of sliding glass doors framed in powder-coated aluminium. The 16 foot (5m) corner wall of glass fills the kitchen with sunlight, offers an unbroken sightline into the garden and, when the sun shines, can be opened entirely to the patio. A long rectangular skylight in the new ceiling adds even more light.

A nature-inspired backsplash complements the raw materiality of concrete countertops. Three mirror-polished pendant lights hang above the island, and help to create a modern industrial appearance.
