Create a reading room and basement entertainment space, transforming the way this London townhouse is used. This challenging site has produced some spectacular results.
A difficult site will allow creative ideas to flow. Here our client wished to access a glazed extension designed on two levels.
The concept stages were critical in exploring how to design a workable scheme, whilst considering the existing room layouts.
The resulting structure provides a lower ground, light filled space off the kitchen for entertaining, along with a glazed room above from which to enjoy views of the garden.
The resulting stylish classical orangery, houses an antique spiral staircase which provides access to the lower level, multi-functional space which includes areas for dining, entertaining and relaxing by a stunning reclaimed french fireplace.
Twin roof lights allow natural light to flood into even the darkest recesses of the lower ground rooms.
There is so much more to this spacious lower room with folding doors which open onto and provide access to a sunken courtyard garden.
Decorative metal floor grilles cover the underfloor trench heating system to the inside of the folding screen.
