A home extension is one way to add square footage to a house, which is what architecture firm Bradley Van Der Straeten did when they were tasked with creating more living space for a growing family in London, England.
The L-shaped brick and glass extension was designed to add space at the side and rear of the home, with a large black framed corner window providing a glimpse of the interior and back garden.
Inside the extension, a corner window bench filled with colorful cushions takes advantage of the light from the window.
When looking out of the corner window, you are greeted with a view of a small side garden and the brick walls and windows of the original house.
Adjacent to the window seat is a tall bookshelf that reaches all the way to the ceiling and includes plenty of space for decor and books.
