Other Studio Architects have been appointed to extend and reconfigure a Victorian ground floor flat in Streatham, South London.

For the client, both human and a furry it was about creating an open plan living, kitchen and dining space with increased connection to the garden. The southern aspect maximises this but avoids excessive solar gain by locating the glazing line on the inner face of the wall and shying away from the current trend of full width glazing. On the northern aspect between old and new in the outrigger inset, a small fern garden allows a more shady quality of light.

Externally it's a game of proportions with a simple material pallet of brick, concrete and timber reflected inside and out.
