The architect’s description

This detached 1930s house in north London, virtually unaltered since the previous owners bought it in 1965, was transformed into a spacious, light-filled home for the clients and their four children.

The ground floor was substantially extended and reconfigured to create a series of dynamic living spaces oriented towards the large, south-facing garden.

The whole house was entirely refurbished and refitted, while the roof was reconstructed and extended to provide two additional bedrooms and a bathroom.

A palette of new materials – pre-weathered zinc sheet, Welsh slate copings, sedum green roofing and basalt paving – complement the original red brickwork and tiles.
