Text description provided by the architects. Acquisition of an adjoining site made possible a new extension to an existing Victorian period house in Brondesbury, North London, which had stabling at ground floor level originally. This enabled a doubling of the original volume and transformation into a stunning contemporary home for the two occupants.

The building occupies a corner plot and acts a ‘bookend’ to the existing house and terraced street. The mono-pitched slate roof is separated from the existing brick house by a dark grey rendered panel which also demarks the new entrance to both parts of the newly combined buildings. A timber slatted screen to the front glazing provides extra privacy. The Welsh slate roof finish is taken down the side elevation creating a unified and discreet facade to the street.

The new wing provides spacious open plan living/dining and kitchen on ground floor opening out through full height glazed sliding doors to a limestone paved terraced area at the rear. Wide board Oak flooring with underfloor heating throughout gives the clean interior a unified calm appearance.

The dining area is located to take advantage of views to both the front and rear gardens. A study/gym and utility room within the boundary of the existing house complete the accommodation at ground floor level. A substantial roof-light over the stone clad island unit lights the kitchen from above.

The living room features a real wood fire supported on a linear Limestone shelf which also conceals an LED wall-washer luminaire.
