Extensive refurbishment, excavation and rear extension of a residential property in Peckham, south London

The project comprised the extensive refurbishment, reconfiguration and extension of a four storey terraced Victorian house. Originally arranged with a self-contained flat at lower ground level, there was limited connection with the extensive rear garden and a disconnected series of living spaces and kitchen over the upper ground and first floor levels.

A revised configuration created an open plan living space at lower ground level with kitchen and associated utility room, dining room and family room opening on to a full width lower terrace. A new study/office space at upper ground level gives expansive views over the garden, which can be glimpsed from the main entrance hallway.

The overall form of the extension was carefully considered with a ‘cranked’ rear elevation which endeavours to capture the westerly afternoon sun. Clad in splayed larch, the boards follow the form of the ‘crank’ to create a dramatic sweep and are mitred at the corners to form the window reveals. Over time the cladding will naturally silver in colour and blend with the existing London stock brickwork.
