“The gallery is in a Georgian building, we live in a Victorian house, and my favourite room is a contemporary extension. We bought the house in 2013, and renovated it completely. We had a clear vision of what we wanted and worked closely with a wonderful architect, Claire Hyland, to realise it.
The extension includes a kitchen/dining/living area, and has a glass box giving on to the garden. The side wall of the garden is covered in ivy, and there’s a Japanese red maple in view, and we can also see trees in neighbouring gardens, so when we’re there we can feel as though we’re actually sitting in the garden. ” – Oliver Sears
