Garden Square Refurbishment & Extension | Architects of Lambeth | Kennington Conservation Area, South East London
forresterarchitects recently completed the refurbishment and extension of a charming mid-terraced townhouse in Kennington, South London. Although the house had well-proportioned living spaces and bedrooms, the galley kitchen was unremarkable and needed an update. The client wanted a modern, bright and airy kitchen, so the architects proposed a frameless glazed roof-light extension.
The new extension spans the full width of the house and connects the raised ground floor kitchen and dining room with the lower ground floor lounge room. This new addition provides much-needed connectivity between the different levels of the house, creating a seamless flow between the spaces. The glazed roof-light floods the kitchen with natural light, making it bright and inviting. The new kitchen is a modern and functional space, designed to meet the client’s requirements for a bright and airy atmosphere. forresterarchitects worked closely with the client to ensure that the design met their needs while also being visually appealing.
The frameless glazed roof-light is the focal point of the extension, providing a stunning view of the sky above and creating a sense of openness and spaciousness. It also allows natural light to penetrate deep into the house, creating a bright and welcoming atmosphere. The full-width extension allowed for a larger kitchen area, providing plenty of space for cooking, entertaining, and dining. Overall, the refurbishment and extension of this quaint garden squared mid-terraced townhouse in Kennington, South London is a success.
