This late Victorian terraced property in Stoke Newington had a small dark basement and a series of ground floor rooms that were poorly connected to each other and to the garden.
Our proposal increased the rear part of the building to the full width of the site. This allowed an enlarged dining space and kitchen to relate to the garden. An angled lightwell maintains the natural light to the spaces that surround it.
This slant is in turn reflected in the staircase which opens up both the basement and the double reception to sunlight and the rear areas of the house.
