Kitchen extension wins architectural award

An extension to a property in Suffolk has won an architectural award, it has emerged.

Tributes were paid to the countys "wealth of stunning buildings" by the Suffolk Association of Architects, online resource EADT reports.

A panel of three judges handed out awards to a total of 16 buildings that were completed in the region during the course of 2007.

The winner of the residential extension was an end-terrace Victorian property on York Road in Bury St Edmunds, owned by Tim and Annie Page.

It was designed to create a workable kitchen environment and a dining room that related better to the propertys garden.

Judges commented: "This project demonstrates clearly the benefits of good design within a sensitive residential conservation area," the resource explains.

Meanwhile, industry commentator Donny Sheridan recently wrote in the Sunday Mail that once consumers make the decision to make their living space larger, the extension building process is "relatively simple".
