An end of terrace house in Herne Hill, with a wedge shaped garden provided an opportuniuty to add a pavillion to the side of the house. This new dining space freed up the previously cramped kitchen space. The new room sits between a new courtyard space and the rear garden, but maintains an openess through to the rear garden, with both side walls glazed. In the day the room is open and light filled; At night it becomes a more intimate, warmly lit space. The addition was carefully detailed with exposed timber joists and a concrete shelf cast into the end brick wall.
An existing semi basement was also excavated and converted into useable space, with planning gained on appeal for a window facing the street as well as to the side. The project added a total 55sqm of new space to the house.
