The open-plan kitchen you wish you had

The Affleck team recently finished a truly spectacular house renovation in Clapham. The back of the house has been completely transformed in to a bright modern kitchen, with sliding glass walls that open the house to the garden space. Perfect for enjoying the long summer nights we're currently dreaming of.

The project was the outcome of a very productive partnership with Millar + Howard Architects; who share their design thinking below.

If you would like a kitchen like this Affleck are offering a complimentary 3D kitchen design service - find out more below.

The house on Kerrison Rd initially presented itself as a timepiece, having had only 3 owners since it was built in Victorian times. There was still an outdoor privvy, many of the original features, and almost no mod-cons.

The aim of the project was to retain a sense of the history whilst creating bright spacious 21st century living space with plenty of personality. So the principal rooms at the front of the house and the entry hallway were kept and carefully restored, while at the back the cellular 'servant' rooms were opened together and to the garden; the rear wall literally peeled open on two sides of the garden. This allows for a light-filled kitchen living space with a tropical courtyard twist.
