Victorian Terrace House Extension
Holloway, London | N19
For this large kitchen extension, we took the simple approach by forming a single pitch roof with skylights. As the neighbour had a two-storey extension, we were able to achieve a substantially high ceiling.
This was important to maximise the amount of light and sense of space – a contrast to what was there before, a dark, narrow living room with very little natural daylight. On the southeast corner of the room – at roof level – we introduced a small, triangular window.
Despite its small size, the effect is substantial as it draws in light, particularly in the morning.
