A contemporary extension to a 19th Century farmhouse in the village of Istead Rise, North Kent.

The proposal centers on providing a spacious family dining area and garden room, open plan to a remodeled kitchen, itself extended to the side to accessing utility storage and cloakroom.

The traditional appearance of the farmhouse, with London stock buff and red bricks is continued to the side extension to preserve the street scene. Once within the privacy of the landscaped garden, the extension takes the form a simple extensively glazed, flat roofed structure, offset with red cedar panels contrasting with the exposed steel frame either side of the retractable screen framing the view into the garden.
