The meeting between the modern extensions, with a rich yet minimal material palette, and the proudly enhanced historic features of the original Victorian Terrace is what creates a home with true character. Punching holes in the narrow and dark original building allows light to fill the previously dark spaces, and utilising the height of the rooms and carefully designing bespoke joinery, makes the home both fun and spacious. The colours and interior design create a retreat from the outside world and offer moments of repose, relaxation and rejuvenation, all hidden behind a humble historic Highgate facade.
