Greswell Street

This project encompasses the complete refurbishment of a house with extensions on ground and 2nd floor, and the creation of a home office and family room in a studio building at the end the garden.

The house and the studio are brought into an enjoyable relationship by sharing a common architectural language but with different compositions to suit each circumstance.

Raised dormer windows not only bring light into the interiors but also give a sense of the two buildings addressing each other and the garden thus gains a cloister-like feel, whilst also referring back to the windows of the existing house. The design pays careful attention to fine detail of the internal and external treatment seeking to avoid the blandness of much contemporary architecture.
