A wide illusion
Location: Danbury street, N1
Renovation of and extension of a Georgian house
Why: Our clients approached us soon after purchasing their house in order to design a rear extension and re-design the lower ground and ground storeys. The main issue which was disturbing our clients was the house’s narrow floor plan, only 4.4M wide . The lower ground floor had to house a new kitchen, sitting area and dinning area without feeling like a long and narrow sequence. The size of the house called for the utilisation of every little corner of the Lower ground floor. Space under the stairs was maximized, built in furniture against the walls and a large glazed part of the roof, all contributed to a sense of width and allows light to penetrate all the way into the interior. The exterior design is of modest proportions and respects the conservation area and the continuity of the rear facades of the terrace.
