Refurbishment of a Victorian terrace house in a Conservation Area in North London to reorganise and enlarge the family living areas.

A contemporary side extension, loft extension and internal remodeling to a Victorian terrace in the Whitehall Park Conservation Area in North London. The client is an interior designer from Brazil with a young family. Throughout the design, sympathetic remodeling of the existing house aims to create an open plan living, eating and playing, which can be divided with bespoke partition screens when needed whilst retaining the original character of the house. At every turn the design maintains a clean and crisp architecture with a hint of tropical vibe.

The extension provides a large dining room/kitchen to the rear of the house. The glazed roof brings more light into the existing house and the large sliding doors to the rear make the garden part of the home. Upstairs, the loft extension provides an additional bedroom and bathroom for a growing family, with carefully considered layouts and built in furniture to make the most of compact spaces.
