Hampstead house extension architect view of bedroom with cupboards

Architecture for London has completed detailed design for a Hampstead house extension and refurbishment

The property is part of a Victorian terrace located on Savernake Road, adjacent to Hampstead Heath and in the borough of Camden. It lies in the Mansfield Conservation Area and all external alterations therefore required planning consent.

The brief was to refurbish the tired interior to create a contemporary home with a larger kitchen. An extension with bi-folding doors leads to a small outdoor timber decked terrace. Bedrooms are reconfigured to make better use of the existing space and a new library is created in the first floor reception room. The master bedroom suite is refurbished and redecorated, with new joinery throughout.

The conservation area is predominantly residential, with terraced streets originally developed in the second half of the 19th Century and, with the final streets completed in 1910. The tree-planted streets contain solid three-storey Victorian family houses of remarkable uniformity which have kept their original external features, and provide a coherent example of late 19th century urban residential development.
