An extension of two halves, molding itself to the context of an overlooked urban site in South London to create a more spacious family home Seeking to retain privacy without resorting to the ubiquitous bi-folding doors solution, this extension is made of two halves.
The first half has a duo pitched roof, to maintain the neighbour’s view, then twists in the middle to form a mono pitch roof, rising from 2.4 metres to 4 metres high. Rather than having glazing across the whole of the rear elevation, a large window seat is inserted at one side of the elevation, to frame a view of the beautiful south-facing garden. A steel frame core, with a secondary timber frame, is internally clad with plywood, and externally wrapped in a waterproof membrane and then clad in cedar, which will turn silver over time.
Nominated for Don’t Move Improve Award 2018.
