The capability of materials to form space sometimes outstrip their social use. In this house, the original 60’s free-spanning structure had been buried in a cellular Victorian plan, reflecting suburban domestic values of the day. This project therefore radically opens the spaces, matching the promise of the original structure, and synchronising the use with today’s living practices. The scheme includes a striking suspended system of joinery which branches off the original structure.

Careful restoration of the existing historic building is balanced internally with new inserted room-like elements which stand off the building shell like large pieces of furniture.

Extending this large house in South London relies on an ambiguity in the new work as a house extension or as a detached garden entity. The glazed 'pavilion' with its planted roof cuts into and extends the existing kitchen, connecting it to the landscape beyond.

Previously lost, the original rear façade with its bay window is returned to the garden elevation. Internally, services and clutter are absorbed by two dynamic walls, leaving a floating oak bench and seat to lead the composition.
