We started work on this project as our clients were buying the house. Our brief was to update the ground floor layout to create a modern family home.
Our design solution was to open up the structure and to construct a new extension with frameless glass corner. The house enjoys great views of Richmond Park which the design maximises.
Our clients loved the character of the house, and it was important to reflect this in the design. We used original London yellow stock bricks reclaimed from a building of the same period for the walls. The design also uses the brickwork to add warmth to the interior.
We have used a sustainable green roof for the extension. This looks great from the bedrooms on the first floor, as well as reducing energy use. Large glass roof lights bring lots of natural light in to the new kitchen. The kitchen itself was flown in from Germany taking just 3 days to install on site.
