This small London flat is located in a converted Victorian house. The apartment's living spaces were recently reconfigured to create openness between the living room and kitchen and freshen things up a bit:
The old kitchen was partitioned off from the living space and had a dropped ceiling that further detached it from the main space of the apartment. Now, it is open to the main space but its alcove location still keeps it somewhat tucked away. We love this resolution.
A balcony is reached by passing through the kitchen. Glass doors to the small outdoor space bring natural light into the kitchen. Having direct access to an adjacent outdoor space, no matter how modest, helps make the small kitchen area feel more spacious.
Subtle changes made by the architect, like revealing original mouldings, opening up a wall, and covering exposed pipes show off this beautiful old space in its best light. See more of this small kitchen at Architect Your Home.
