Location: South London

Type: Residential Extension & Renovation

Cost: £70,000

Status: Completed

Kieran Wardle Architects worked with a private client on an exciting scheme in Hither Green, South London, to extend and renovate a typical Victorian terraced house. The extension is designed to reflect the language of the Victorian property whilst creating a lightfilled, open plan kitchen & dining area overlooking the home’s south facing garden.

The proposal uses a tonal London Stock brick with matching mortar work to compliment the existing Victorian dwelling whilst distinguishing the new living space as a contemporary addition to the street. The verticality of the existing Victorian house is strongly referenced in the inclusion of a new chimney stack on the rear elevation design to give a domestic focus to the new internal space and conceal a wood burning stove and its flue externally.
