Private House, London SW3 The project involved the complete refurbishment of a four storey terraced townhouse within a Chelsea conservation area including a new two storey glazed rear extension creating a light and bright contemporary home.
House extension, London N8 By opening up and reorganising the existing kitchen and dining areas, new flexible, spacious and contemporary, open plan living areas are created within this Victorian semi detached family house situated within a conservation area. Incorporating a large new timber, painted render and glazed rear extension enables natural light to penetrate deep into the interior and reinforces the link to the garden. Timber decking and full width folding/sliding glazed doors peel back to allow full access to a sunny patio and continues the floor finish, visually drawing the eye out into the long south facing rear garden creating the illusion of space. Completed spring 2008.

The existing structure and industrial materials are retained and left raw as salvaged archaeological remnants. New interventions are deliberately kept simple and low key using natural finished materials creating a relaxed and comfortable flexible space that can also be used for entertaining and presentations. Completed November 2002.
