Rear Extension | St Margarets

Project Details

£100,000 to £249,999

Alteration to existing property


Studio Wolsey Ltd

148b Downham Road , London , N1 3HJ , UK

This project is a lovely large Victorian terraced house, in St Margarets, with an ageing side and rear extension. The clients wanted to inject a new lease of life into the ground floor and refresh the side and rear extension. Studio Wolsey designed a new rear and side extension and reorganised the ground floor layout. The result is a large open plan kitchen and dining room which opens out to the rear garden. Large bifold doors, a rooflight and the glazed side return, help to flood the space with natural light. The front room keeps its original proportions, fireplace and decorative cornice and becomes the main living room. A small study space with bespoke built in joinery connects the living room to the rear kitchen.
