A young coupleLocation Hackney, north LondonProperty A Victorian terraced houseSize Four bedrooms Designer Kate Clare of LOUD Architecture & Interior DesignPhotos by Chris SnookCreating a large kitchen-diner that was not only light but also easy to navigate was a priority for the couple. “We decided we’d extend at the back of the property and to the side to create a large, open-plan space,” Kate says. “We excavated to gain more head height – we were able to [remove] a small amount of the floor without the need to underpin the entire length of the wall, gaining valuable height.”The neighbours had also extended, so to avoid the side addition being totally overlooked, Kate installed large skylights rather than uninterrupted glazing along the roof. “Not only does it create privacy, but the couple are able to have a pendant light over their dining table, which sits underneath,” Kate says. “This was a great way to save money and speed up delivery times, too, as the windows could be ordered before the roof was finished.”Dining table; bar stools; cabinet handles, all DeVOL.

How involved should I be in the project?“The first meeting should be used to establish how much input and communication the client is going to have,” Eamonn says. “Having these discussions early on will help both parties understand how much input is to be expected.“For example,” he continues, “we’ve undertaken projects where the client is abroad for the entirety of the build and only able to make site visits twice in the whole length of the project. In this type of scenario, it’s important to clarify how the client will be updated and how they’ll be approached if decisions have to be made.”“Some clients are happy to pass everything over, while I provide regular updates on the progress with any decisions that need to be made,” says Jennifer. “Others want to be more involved and are present on site most days, but I would still need to be included in any discussions that change the course of the work.”
