Two-Storey Extension | Ardleigh | Architects for Islington
Refurbishment / Listed and Conservation
A two storey extension reconnects with the garden and sky in Islington, North London.
The most problematic but desirable outside space was the retention of the existing roof terrace area. Accessed from the raised ground floor lounge it provides a pleasant outside space. A rear extension takes the form of a full-width aperture to the rear of a property, but the existing roof terrace was retained. This provided an opportunity to establish a hierarchy of spaces which determined the form of the rear extension.
A bespoke hand-painted timber kitchen has been designed to our client’s exact requirements. The paint colours conceal solid timber drawer and carcase linings with full height walk-in larder. The kitchen island is a fine Carrera marble work-surfaces with a contrasting colour to the breakfast bar island.
