Northampton Park ResidenceEdit profile
This conversion and extension of an existing four storey Georgian Villa in north London provides a variety of open plan and double•height living, dining and working spaces. Exaggerated perspectives choreographed to create a series of unexpected views of the surrounding landscape and trees and create a sequence of varied and inspiring internal spaces.
The upper and lower ground floors of the existing house are transformed to include a kitchen and dining area on the lower, and living area on the upper. The conversion includes the insertion of two bespoke iron fireplaces, fair-faced concrete and black-lacquered joinery walls. The side and rear extensions are clad in zinc and glass, with a geometry of folded solid and transparent surfaces.
The one-storey side extension includes a studio space and kitchenette. Internal and external living spaces are integrated and combined with a new courtyard at ground level and a roof terrace at Upper Ground Floor level, extending from the living room. The two -storey rear extension is a contemporary reinterpretation of a bay window in the living room, and opens the dining area up to a garden patio and terrace.
