To further improve the connection between this terraced house and its garden, a high-quality, contemporary, single-storey glazed extension is being added. Conceived as a ‘lightbox’, the extension’s materials and forms are a simple contrast to those of this period home in the London Fields' conservation area. Glazed sliding doors and roof lights introduce a generous quantity of daylight and emphasize the link to the greenery outside.
The layout has also been reconfigured to tidy away utilities, place the kitchen closer to the garden and maximise inside-outside connections.
A new conservation dormer at the more visible roof level allows for the creation of an additional bedroom
