A kitchen extension formed by inserting a glazed box into the rear of a Georgian listed building. The contrast between the clean lines of the glass and the texture of traditional brickwork has produced a crisp, elegant and modern kitchen. The 'missing column' in the corner of the room further breaks down the barrier between kitchen and garden. The added space of the kitchen has created a lasting robust addition for a busy family.
Approx Budget: £120k
Designed in collaboration with Sam Sarginson (Architect) and Alex Sarginson
Over a period of 50 years a rear garden plot facing onto Belsize Park has grown from being a parking space, to a garage and then to a small house. This evolution process continues as a luxurious house is designed to fit within the site. The house treads carefully so as to not intrude on its neighbours, yet it stands up on its own as a modern reinterpretation of the Victorian Italianate Villas of its milieu.

A brick tile canopy formed of reinforced tiles using the Catalan Vaulting Technique with specialist contractor Sarah Pennal. The arabesque screens have been designed by SHA to enclose the smoking area.

A kitchen extension in Barnet that brings openness and light into a compact kitchen area within a tightly woven Victorian street. Integral to the design is the seating in the garden space that makes the garden an integral part of the main kitchen space. A dramatic square Velfac window separated by skinny piers provides an aesthetic focal point between the kitchen and garden.
A typical Victorian house leaves little garden space and small kitchens yet at the same time the needs of a modern family require a kitchen generous enough to act as a social hub for the family. To this end treating the garden as a room within the house and offering a large rooflight opening to the kitchen has been integral to creating a light and open feel within the house connecting the cellular structure into a fluid transition of different spaces.
Approx. Budget: £120k
Providing a moment of surprise the glass rooflight opens, creating a transient open courtyard with the kitchen island as its centrepiece.
The dining table is placed across the rear adjacent to the external courtyard, almost stepping over the threshold to encourage al fresco dining.
A full refurbishment of an Islington terrace on Caledonian road including a basement extension, three storey rear extension and a mansard conversion. The idea to recess the structure within the opening window frames has been developed to offer a much cleaner look with cantilevered floorplates.

A highly insulated building this construction is designed to better the requirements of the Building Regulations, and bring an otherwise draughty building into line with current legislation.
