Location: Crouch End, London
This project is a modern extension to the rear of an early Victorian house including a full internal refurbishment. Large folding glazed doors open up the rear of the house to the garden. A level door threshold provides a seamless floor from inside to outside without the need for steps or frames.
A creative structural solution leaves the cantilevered roof to appear to suspend in mid air when the doors are open. A deep Iroko hardwood roof soffit provides architectural styling which is repeated in a matching summerhouse at the rear of the garden.
