    Build in depth and layersOur visual experience of the spaces we inhabit is crucial if they are to be inspiring and exciting, and more often than not the most effective way to create real visual richness is by setting up ‘views’ within and through spaces with ‘layers’. In other words, structures that allow you to see from one space through a second to a third or even fourth in the distance.This unusual double-height extension with views through to the front of the house top and bottom, and also onto a landing with a glass balustrade, is a great example.However, this effect can be done on a smaller scale, too. Creating and even framing a view from a kitchen area, across a dining area, through a living space and out to a garden, for example, can hugely enhance the sense of space.

    The living room which is higher than the kitchen extension has a glass half wall replacing the original rear wall, steps down into the kitchen which has a high ceiling to open onto the living room using a side return extension and back extension.

    Sliding doors have large areas of glass, use thinner panes than bifold, and can be tall if required.
