ARCHMONGERS LLP as Architects

This 1980s end-of-terrace house has been extended to reactivate the unused spaces in the walled courtyard garden. The garage has been converted into a bedroom and is now connected to the house via a single-storey courtyard extension.
A new entrance replaces the porch to update the front elevation. A series of clerestory windows introduce light throughout the ground floor while maintaining privacy in this tight urban site. The connecting extension contains a terrazzo-lined kitchen and dining room adjacent to the courtyard garden.


A separate gable wall bay extension equips the smallest room in the house with the largest window, extending the study with a view of the urban roofscapes and sky.


The exterior brick stain unifies the new walls with the old, distinguishing the house from the rest of the terrace. The corrugated aluminium emphasises the pitched forms of the roof while the material reflects the surrounding urban landscape, vegetation and sky, changing with the light.


The home evokes the client’s peripatetic childhood. It creates a private landscape of views through large courtyard doors and foliage into light-filled rooms, creating its own context juxtaposed with the urban grain of London beyond.
