Southgate House Extension
Project Year: 2015
Project Cost: £100,001 - £150,000
Country: United Kingdom
Eleni, Andreas and their young family live in their 4 bedroom Victorian terraced property in North London. They engaged Model Projects to design a modern, open plan kitchen and dining area for the whole family to enjoy.
The design brief was to design a side to rear extension, to create a large open plan kitchen, dining and family snug area. The principle of the design was to be sensitive to the original character of the property and yet provide a modern and light internal space. To achieve this the Model Projects design team proposed a London stock yellow brickwork wall, flat roof and simple stone parapet detail.
To draw natural light into the space the design allowed for a large, two panel, full height, sliding door to the rear, with a large pitched roof down the side of the extension. An LED strip light shadow gap detail was proposed around the rooflight. This gives the rooflight a gentle glow during the dark evenings.
