A small, hidden kitchenKitchens were considered to be the territory of servants for the wealthy, and would certainly not have been on display to the public in smaller homes. Beyond the main house would have been what is called a rear projection or outrigger, which housed the kitchen, pantry and, historically, an outside toilet. ‘The only rooms to be presented to the public were the formal reception rooms. That’s probably one of the biggest differences between an original Victorian property built in the 19th century, and one now: things like cooking were certainly not something on show to friends and guests,’ says Martyn Clarke. The rear projections were often more than 6m long, and can be extended sideways today to create around 40 sq m of space.
