Fabulous town house with mezzanine

This large townhouse wasn’t lacking in space, but with a gloomy kitchen in the basement, it needed more light and connection to the rest of the house.

With little space to extend outwards, I suggested that we extend the kitchen space vertically by removing the floor above to create a double-height ceiling. Designing a mezzanine level, and incorporating a wall of glass opened up the whole space from the basement to the lounge area above.

A vertical challenge

There were significant structural implications of taking out a floor! It required two large steels to reinforce and support the structure. But the result was the two-metre-high ceiling and large windows and doors out to the garden, flooding the formerly dark basement with light.
