forresterarchitects provided a full architectural service for an Art Deco refurbishment with a new rear extension in Queen’s Park, North West London. The project involved giving a new lease of life to an Art Deco house that had been nestling among a series of unremarkable post-war detached houses.
The original kitchen of the house was small for its size, and the growing family desired a better connection between the kitchen and the large rear garden. To address this, an inventive solution was needed, and a kitchen courtyard space was introduced. This new space created a visual connection between the landscaped garden and the reconfigured kitchen, dining room, and lounge room. In addition to the new kitchen courtyard space, a series of new steps were added to provide easy access up to the landscaped garden. As the project progressed, the scope of work was increased to include a complete refurbishment of all bedrooms and bathrooms. One of the bedrooms was transformed into an en-suite to the master bedroom, which featured ample space for a twin shower. The plumbing was installed for future use, though the client did not require a bath. To complete the Art Deco refurbishment, a new rendered facade and roof were added, creating a revitalised building frontage to the street. The final result is a modernised Art Deco house that now blends seamlessly with the surrounding area.
forresterarchitects demonstrated their ability to address the challenges of the existing building while creating modern living spaces. Their design solutions maximised the potential of the property, providing a better connection between the interior and exterior spaces. The Art Deco refurbishment in Queen’s Park, North West London is a perfect example of how a historic property can be given a new lease of life while preserving its character.
