Brick House Extension
The crew over at Studio 1 Architects added a brick extension with a over sized windows to the back end of this London Victorian home, in addition to generating a light-filled rest area bound in white-washed ash slats.
The local studio redesigned and enlarged the bottom floor of the Gladstone Road premises in south-west London. The ideal was to make living spaces with views and access to the garden, while keeping modern.
It forms part of a wider rehab of this brick house extension. This included tearing down interior walls and floors. All together it all combines a loft extension for a the new master bedroom and full bath.
“Inside this modest Victorian House is a remarkable, contemporary gut rebuild with a supplementary roof and rear annex,” said the designer.
“Unseamed skylights, exposed brickwork, projecting glass box, concrete floors, whitewashed ash slats and oak ribs create an charming new loom of a period house,” they reckon.

On the bottom floor, a long skylight divides the remaining property. It separate the property from a single level brick build filled by a built-in resting area. Also you’ll witness a huge window that beam in the direction of the garden with narrow black structure.
The rest area is assembled in below the massive window, while slats of white-washed ash rim the walls and cover the ceiling.
“A bump out glass box extends over the garden,” explained the builders. “This box is rimless and provides a close interconnection to the garden when sitting in the constructed seating area.”
“Ash timber slats create placement of the resting area and covers the entire ceiling,” they added.”These vanishes into a seamless skylight.”
“The weathered oak planks function both structurally and aesthetically, and gives a slatted light effect over the dining area,” they said.
A extended bench runs aside the the brick wall ending with a pair of glass doors opening to the garden.
This space in addition to the kitchen features a centered white island and low hung wall cabinets. The dark-grey upper cabinets supplement the concrete flooring and seat cushions.
The new bedroom host a mansard roof which creates a high space, while lines of lights are featured along the edge and behind the breast of the chimney.
Bright accents, as well as orange lighting and colorful artwork, neutralize the simple white-painted walls and light grey carpeting.
Finally he full-width skylight helps the new bathroom so that the owners can look to the sky when bathing.
