Concept proposal for this residential property involved a complete 'facelift' and enlargement of the existing house in Highgate, North London.
Clients brief was to completely remodel and enlarge the three storey semi detached house which was insufficient for the growing family needs. The proposed scheme included adding a rear extension, the whole top floor to be used as an office space and a basement fully covering the footprint of the existing house.
The existing layout was reconfigured, adding a 20 m² glazed rear extension creating an open modern space leading to the garden. The proposal also included a complete change of the exterior look, with blackened timber cladding running from top to bottom. It lends the house a tactile and fluid look.
