Victorian Detached House in Putney, South-West London, SW15

restoration : extension : interior design

This substantial family home was marred by inadequate kitchen and family areas, which our client wanted to enlarge with a rear extension. Researching into the form the extension might take, we decided upon a traditional solid-masonry garden room, avoiding the more obvious conservatory style, that we felt inappropriate to this area. The design features floor-to-ceiling windows and glazed doors to allow natural light to flood in and to create a spatial connection with the landscaped garden.

We sourced building materials that matched those originally used, to ensure a seamless transition from the existing house to the new build. As well as extending the accommodation, we remodelled the rest of the ground floor rear elevation to reflect the new status of this part of the house. Installing larger windows, we also recreated architectural features from the front of the property and applied them at the rear. The new raised terrace unites the garden with the house and enhances the decorative style of the architecture.
