dulwich house, south london

  • alterations

This substantial 260m2 three storey town house in Dulwich, London had not been fully renovated for almost 50 years. The plan layout was thin but deep and the existing centre of the house was void from sufficient natural light. The ground floor was opened up and extended into the garden in an L-shaped plan.

The design strategy was based on two sliding walls which locked themselves against the house with a delicate glass frame connecting back to the existing house. This allowed for the transfer of the kitchen to utilise the natural linear side of the now extended house. The entire house was refurbished to a high standard with all fireplaces restored to their former glory with all the rooms now oozing with space, light and quality.
