A series of staggered volumes capture light and sky

Staggered Extension | Architect for Walthamstow | East London

My client’s love their little terraced house house in Walthamstow but it’s dark. An existing extension is located to the back of the house and provides the house with its only bathroom. This bathroom however cuts off light and view of the garden to the house with the kitchen and dining room almost like rooms within rooms. Our first move is to knock down the extension and provide series of extruded volumes aim to capture light and views of the sky. The family bathroom is moved to the first floor adjacent to the bedrooms and a loft dormer is added for guests with its very own ensuite.
