Take a large Victorian house in South West London with a side extension added in the 1980s, and what have you got? A rather higgledy-piggledy collection of spaces on split levels and very awkward circulation between rooms. Working with architect James Cattle of Snell David, interior designer Amanda Durham was given a clear brief by her clients. By relocating the cooking and dining space to the garden level and removing part of the upper ground floor, James was able to create a spectacular space. A new single storey extension beyond makes room for a spacious dining area, with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors opening directly on to the garden.
