The owners of this family house, in a conservation area in Wimbledon, wanted to extend and enlarge their home. The problem here was typical of Victorian houses in London where the kitchen was too small and the dining room was a remote, disconnected space. The ground floor was a warren of smaller rooms and didn’t suit the contemporary family lifestyle of inclusive open plan living.
The ground floor is now a seamless, interconnected space with a large kitchen-diner, storage and utility room, while the new larger windows and French doors to the garden terrace increase the amount of natural light coming in. We added a new bedroom and bathroom in the attic, redecorated throughout and refurbished with new bathrooms and an underfloor heating system. The house is now not only a light, airy and warm space it is also more energy efficient.
