Richmond house extension architect plans ground floor sketch

Architecture for London has completed an initial design session for a Richmond house extension

The project is a rear extension and loft conversion for a terraced Victorian house on Selwyn Avenue, in the Borough of Richmond upon Thames.

The house is reorganised with a generous new circulation route through the rear reception room that leads to the rear extension. Floor levels are lowered in the extension to maximise the ceiling height, and internal brick finishes are exposed to add material texture to the space. A playroom and an adults room are created in the rear and front reception rooms respectively, while a utility and WC are inserted beneath the stair.

Selwyn Avenue is adjacent to Richmond Park, and it lies within ‘The Pagoda Triangle’ character area. The area has a consistent character derived from its decorative terrace houses which are two-storeys with subtle variations in architectural style across the area. The terraces are predominantly of red brick with stucco dressings. The houses also generally have projecting bays topped by gables. Most have decorative terracotta panels under the first-floor windows.
