Briffa Philips: K-pod, Pinner, Middlesex

Briffa Philips: K-pod, Pinner, Middlesex

When a client brought Matt Briffa a sketch of a standard lean-to conservatory as an extension to his mock-Tudor house, the architect immediately began sketching alternatives, arguing that the design could be far more imaginative. The outcome: a timber-framed pod clad in bronze and translucent resin panels, connected to the house by a glazed passageway. The pod contains the kitchen, though the existing kitchen was the one element of the original house the owner was happy with. ‘It was a less obvious solution to open up the interior of the house and create a less conventional layout,’ says Briffa.
