The architect’s brief was to sensitively extend the home and ensure the proposed works enhanced the characteristics of the original property. We began by studying the portions of existing openings and translating those in a more contemporary way within the proposals. Roof lights respond to existing features, and were lined with oak to emphasise this reference, and warm the natural light being drawn deep into the plan of the building. Thin profiled metal framed doors were used in the extension, which responded well to both new and old brick facades, whilst the interior material selections throughout the property used Mies’ Farnsworth House as a reference point, employing a restrained palette of dark metal, walnut-wash solid oak and marble to create a generous feel to this family home, full of light, character and volume. The clean forms, simple materials and limited colour palette allow carefully curated artwork and items of furniture to take centre stage. The rhythmic oak paneling that line the walls in the new extension, allow spaces for artwork to hang, whilst adding a sense of continuity through the property as the materials continued into the generous master suite and dressing room. The combination of bespoke metalwork and timber joinery making evident the element of craft throughout.
