What a lovely addition! This is almost exactly what we have planned for our terraced house, and seeing this has convinced me that we are doing the right thing with the layout. We are also putting a toilet in the middle laundry room (moving it from under the stairs). Our current design does have an island, but seeing this I'm wondering if we need it. I think all of these huge islands might seem dated in a few years and also break up the flow. Love all the plants, too!

Yes, Ann, the 2010 era will be remembered for its islands, I'm sure. We need an 'Is it over for islands?' post from Houzz :-D

I really like the black doors and glass roof but the layout of the kitchen is a little less appealing to me. I love the flow into the garden and I expect in the summer it is a very pleasant place to spend time in.
