The secret room

We step out from the kitchen, or take the French doors from the sitting room. A brick wall closes off the garden at the end of the existing kitchen to create a small yard. Through a door takes us into a tiny glass roofed room – which houses the washing machine and dryer. Through another door we enter a large garden room with full width sliding folding doors facing onto the garden.

A garden room on the end of the existing outbuildings on a narrow terrace house. Bi-fold doors open out on to the garden and a roof light brings in some sunshine. The existing out buildings are lined out to create a wet room with wc, wash basin and shower. A tiny glass roofed space can be used for the utilities that don’t fit into the existing kitchen. The whole is hidden from the house by a brick wall with a wooden door, like a secret room or route that leads to the garden room and garden.

The room can be used for dining, party or guest room – or just a hiding place with a book. Hidden room, secret place. Time for a fountain, tall box hedges and a statuary, peacocks on the lawn.
