Don’t Move Improve | Architect for Belsize Park | Camden, North London
A series of angled facets reconnects with the garden to provides a unique architectural solution. As with most Victorian houses, the kitchen is too small. Only a modest kitchen sink window the offers a glimpse of the glorious gardens beyond. The client wanted the house to feel better connected to the garden. The extension is expressed as series of solid and void angled facets. They have been used to establish a notional hierarchy to provide a level of transparency between the house and garden. The kitchen enjoys a longer footprint with a frameless window to provide views across the neighbouring gardens. Exposed timber joists incorporate low energy strip lighting across the kitchen.
