East London Home

key description: full house renovation and
extension to provide a social family home
year: 2008-2009
client: private client
sqm: 140
borough: Hackney Council, London

A Victorian terraced property is transformed from a handsome but dated shell into a beautiful family home. Key insertions are made to add modern facilities whilst the scale of the rooms and the traditional detailing is both retained and enhanced.

An extension is added at the rear of the property that utilizes sliding, folding doors and roof lights in order to flood the new Kitchen breakfast room with natural light. Creating a level threshold between the kitchen and the rear patio was a key feature that results in a fluid, flowing connection between living space and the garden beyond.
