We worked with Andy and Kate on this grand Victorian semi-detached home in Leytonstone, adding a ‘black box’ side
extension; loft conversion and undertaking a complete refurb.
The extension is clad in Shou Sugi ban - a Japanese technique for charring larch and hosts a large banqueting-style dining area with soaring 3 metre ceilings, fit for entertaining.
Shutters on the outside of the windows allow the space to be converted into a more intimate dining area.
The new ground floor extension connects to the existing house via a glazed link, which sits behind a courtyard designed for al fresco dining. This also allows for views and light through the front to the rear of the house. Clever and consistent glazing was used throughout the house to create a sense of space and maximise natural light.
Sara also designed a luxurious loft conversion with a main bedroom, ensuite bathroom and dressing room. The loft enjoys views across London - with Canary Wharf and the City in the distance.
The result is a unique home, where the new extensions really respect the grandeur that the Victorians intended this house to have.
