A revamp of an Edwardian semi

Side return extensions are ideal for a terraced or semi-detached house

Our client had owned her West London home – an Edwardian semi-detached property dating from 1903  – for eight years when she decided that the kitchen needed some refurbishment and, as the flat roof above it was leaking, she thought it was sensible to consider building a side return extension rather than repairing.

The rear of the house was also laid out in a typical Edwardian configuration with the kitchen a long, thin room which extended into the garden beyond the rest of the house: the size of the space was small in relation to the size of the house and was not conducive to any type of large gathering or entertaining in the space.

ODC’s trade partner More Space provided the building team. From the start, the client knew that she wanted a semi-industrial style for the interior and this governed the chosen design, as well as the large two-panel ODC 300 sliding system which forms the focal point of the large open-plan kitchen, dining and entertaining space.
