South London architects - modern timber cladding Lambeth house extension

Architecture for London has recently completed a number of house extensions and refurbishments in south London

Recent finished works include Milton Road in Lambeth, Breakspears Road in Lewisham and Claylands Road in Lambeth. Current projects are for new build houses, basement excavations, extensions and interior refurbishments.

Our Milton Road house extension improves a Victorian property that originally had a dark kitchen with unsatisfactory views of the garden. A side return and rear extension create a light, spacious home for a growing family. The new space provides sufficient width for an island unit and dining table, allowing the kitchen to function as a social room.

The smaller, easy access door to the garden was designed with the family dog in mind. A polished concrete floor forms a hard wearing, wipe clean surface that also accommodates pets well. This extends into the garden, providing a terrace and uniting interior and exterior spaces. New landscaping and garden fences complete the external space.

The extension is clad in stained cedar chevrons and the pattern folds over a number of planes, suggesting a manipulated and sculpted form whilst tying together the new side and rear additions.

The extension added significant floor area to the house, while the internal alterations have reconfigured the property to be better suited to modern life, with a generous new family bathroom and a master ensuite. Original details including cornices, fireplaces and Victorian tiling were repaired or replaced where required.

Architecture for London has a portfolio of unique homes that are finely crafted to our clients’ requirements. Our residential projects are widely recognised, with shortlistings in the AJ Small Projects, AJ Retrofit and NLA Don’t Move Improve awards, and features in Grand Designs Magazine, The Evening Standard and Dezeen.
