House in Hampstead

This grade II Listed Building in Hampstead was left characterless with most of the original features taken out internally. More space was needed for entertainment and social interaction. The kitchen being the hub of the house and the dining area one floor above, divorced the spaces from each other. An addition to the rear on the lower ground floor formed a more spacious dining area allowing the kitchen to flow through into the extension creating a large open plan kitchen diner. In order to be in keeping with the original building a pitched lead roof was designed with large roof lights and sliding doors to allow natural day light to brighten the already dark kitchen yet discouraging overlooking from the upper levels. A guest room and a larger study was designed on the top floor of the building by which point the building works had spread throughout the house and became a large scale project. All floors were levelled; walls re-plastered. The original features were reinstated - fire places, pendant lights, original skirting boards and cornices.
