This project is for a two-storey rear extension to a semi-detached house in Haringey
This project is for a two-storey rear extension to a semi-detached house in East Finchley. The topography of the site presents a substantial difference in levels between the front of the property and the rear garden. The proposal adapts to the site by stepping down from ground floor to garden level.
In its lower portion, the extension has a depth of 6.5 metres over the full width of the property. At ground floor it sets back to be 3.5 metres deep and 6 meters wide.
This gives the opportunity to create a spacious terrace on the roof of the lower ground floor, which can be accessed through the large glazed openings of the kitchen / dining area. Plenty of natural light rains in between the exposed Douglas fir beams supporting the glass roof above the dining table. he open thread internal stair connects directly to the lower ground lounge area, where generous sliding bi-fold doors open the view towards the rear garden. On both storeys, the visual continuity between internal and external space is enhanced by the use of cement tiles throughout the floor. The external wall surfaces are treated with Kolumba bricks to mark the contrast between the new addition and the existing. The project also considers internal improvements to the existing layout with the provision of a utility area behind the kitchen and the conversion of the garage into a study room.
