The brief was to completely transform the space from what was a very dark and narrow tunnel like space into a fresh, open and paired back interior.

Wall linings were stripped back to reveal the old brickwork and archways that had been covered up. The archways now have mirror inserts that are edge lit which helps to create a soft indirect light and the illusion of space. The backlit glass blocks to the larder are a bold statement bringing what is usually a tool used in architecture to harness natural light.
