Outdoor Connection

  • Residential

The new owners of this 1918 Wallingford bungalow lamented that the original house had an outdated kitchen, a tiny eating space and that it lacked a decent connection to the rear yard. As a result they were not inspired to cook and eat at home much and their outdoor spaces were neglected and filled with weeds. The solution was to create an updated kitchen as well as a dining space that connected them to the greenery of the back yard, neighborhood views and natural light. Double doors from the addition allow one to access a new deck and the yard below which is now landscaped, maintained, and well loved. The 45 degree angled walls in the dining room addition are intended to maximize views and aid the penetration of natural light. They also lend a greater sense of intimacy to the space.
