This project transformed an awkward Victorian terraced house into a spacious family home. The design respects and restores the detail and finesse of the original house, while adding a new contemporary living space to the lower ground floor. This comprised of excavating and underpinning more of the existing lower ground floor to create a large, dynamic open-plan kitchen, dining, playspace, utility and additional bathroom with gorgeous natural light. The space transforms with circus silks for climbing, into a party space by night. The front garden was remodelled allow a new access directly into the lower ground. The rear garden was levelled to maximise the children's playspace. Upstairs, the loft was converted with two new dormers to allow for a study, studio and bathroom.
