Our completed residential extension in Kew is an adaptation and extension of a detached London house, replacing what was previously a mock-Victorian style conservatory.
A continuous flow of spaces begins within the centre of the house, through the new spaces, to the decking and out to the garden, aided by the flush glazing that creates an open corner. Various design features allow the flush zinc roof to appear to float as its own entity; an external column (which doubles up as a down pipe for rainwater) provides support from the deck whilst the top rail of the sky frame is held up by structural steel rods, concealed in silicone joints.
Varying ceiling heights are dictated by the function of the spaces and are sympathetic to the original Victorian features such as a large striking crittall door, detail on the brick façade and bay windows.
