Carlisle Road, Queens Park
Extension, Remodelling, Interior Design & Landscape Design - Completed 2022
This Victorian terrace house is located in the Queens Park Conservation Area with a North-East facing rear garden and a significant level difference between the main house and the outrigger. The client was keen for the new side infill extension to be accessed directly from the rear reception to increase visibility throughout the ground floor and open up views from the front reception all the way through to the garden.
A structural glass roof allows daylight to flood into the new kitchen dining space. A black standing seam zinc dormer protrudes above the glazed roof to provide the additional headroom required to step down into the extension from the main house. A matching black zinc box extends into the garden beyond the outrigger to provide seating in the kitchen. The corner window improves connectivity to the rear garden, whilst a flat rooflight located to the South-East of the extension allows the morning sun to enter above the seating area.
Light coloured plywood lines the internal faces of the zinc dormer and rear extension to provide a warm and tactile natural material in those areas you come close to. The wood finish is also reflected in the pivot door to help bring the natural world in from the garden.
The house has been fully renovated to include a new bathroom, guest loo, loft shower room, double glazed windows, storage joinery, additional insulation, new heating system and a full rewire.
The rear garden was completely re-landscaped to create an external dining area to the back, which receives most sunlight.
Planning permission was granted in September 2020.
