Let the light in - extension and a full house refurbishment
Location: London, N11
Longlisted for 'Innovative home extensions' in the NLA Don’t Move, Improve! Awards 2016
The owner of this newly purchased residential property approached us with a brief to redesign the interior layout, making better use of the large, south-facing garden and incorporating it into everyday life.
Our challenge was to redesign the ground floor layout, creating a flow between the extended open-plan area, new loft space and the property’s existing features.
Using Permitted Development Rights, we designed a rear ground floor extension and a large loft extension.
New, full-height windows brought in natural light for a sense of space in the upper floors, while a ground floor extension made room for an open-plan kitchen with a full view of the garden.
We developed a separate design with a distinct feel for spaces used by guests and private ones. For guest spaces we went for a club-like style with dark colors and sparkling finishes. We designed the garden-facing areas in light colours with a few bold accents.
We chose a neutral, yet modern composition for the upper floors using light, warm colours, natural materials and soft fabrics. A sense of tranquility and relaxation in the master bedroom was achieved with a large sliding windows—allowing for the day to begin and end with a beautiful view of the garden.
If you have a similar development in mind or would like to discuss your ideas,
we’d love to hear from you.
