Today’s homify 360° highlight takes a look at a remodelling job in South Bristol. This house, which belongs to a graphic designer (thus informing us the client is well versed in creativity), required some new touch-ups and stylish designs in the existing kitchen to create a light and airy dining area.
DHV Architects from Bristol took charge of this design. Let’s see how it turned out…
Of course the project also focused on the exterior surfaces, and as we can see here, the existing extension was retained, insulated and clad with large timber planks and acrylic mirror to create the illusion of light and space in a narrow rear yard.
But what sort of effect do those mirror surfaces have on the extension?
Quite a fabulous one, we’d say! When closed completely, those mirror doors perfectly reflect the garden and timber-deck terrace, thereby almost making the extension completely disappear!
At the very least, those mirror doors double up on the green lushness of the garden, which goes a long way in visually enhancing the exterior style of this quaint little terrace.

So charming, so stylish, and so very very practical – definitely choice words you want to use when describing a kitchen, right?
Notice how the turquoise-hued backsplash contrasts with the warm tones of the wooden floor and countertops. And of course the cabinets and appliances all look ripe and ready to help out with storage and whipping up a five-course meal in no time.
Located a few feet away from the cooking spot we locate a dining room which, as we can see, also perfectly doubles up as a home office/working space. And why shouldn’t it, seeing as there is adequate legroom for movement, more than ample natural lighting for comfortable vision, and a clean yet stylish colour palette (and modern/Scandinavian style) to ensure a stunning-looking space?
