The erection of an additional storey to an existing single storey dwelling house

Edward Cullinan Architects built the fully accessible ground floor house on an infill site on Murray Street, Camden in 1982.

In 2013 the new owner, designer & builder Will Slater set out to realise the planning permission for an additional first floor, which was achieved by Cullinan And Buck Architects Ltd (CABAL) in 2001.

The additional storey structure was designed in 2000 as laminated timber ribs and sheets to be dropped as halves onto the existing brick parapet wall, designed again in 2013 as cross-laminated panels and eventually built in 2014 from steel and softwood studs. Stuck-on standing seams channel rainwater away from neighbouring gardens.

The original, signature, exposed oversailing Jacobean-stained softwood beams are painted dove grey with cedar boarding inside and out.
