A new home
This project involved alterations and an extension to a mid terraced Victorian property set within the Heavier Estate Conservation Area of South London
The buildings fabric had been badly damaged by its division into bedsits and was in a state of general dilapidation.
The brief was to re-organise the house and upgrade the existing layout to meet the needs for the clients growing family.
Built using reclaimed brick blending in with the existing fabric, a single storey rear extension forms an open plan kitchen and living area on the ground floor. Light is injected into the darker central area by puncturing a frameless elongated roof light along the newly formed infill addition.
The rear façade is charachterised by the large steel frame glazed opening creating a strong visual and physical link between internal and external spaces, further enhanced by the continued floor finish to the patio area.
The first floor has been reconfigured to allow a generous en-suite and dressing area to the master bedroom. The remaining upper bedrooms have been restored to their original quality with the upgrade of en-suite and bathroom accommodation.
The staircase has been extended leading to a converted loft forming a new study area. With the addition of roof lights to this level it also allowed light to drop down through the circulation space.
Both renovated and newly formed spaces are integrated through the creation of bespoke joinery throughout.
