This mid-terraced property in the Coppermill area of Walthamstow has been fully extended at ground floor level with the addition of a single-storey rear and side infill.
We were briefed to provide a more open plan layout with the inclusion of a new ground floor wc bathroom, dedicated utility room and a larger kitchen with dining area. The existing rear of the ground floor has been knocked through requiring extensive structural alterations with a new engineered Oak floor running from front to back of the property. This new extension is clad in a grey fibre-cement panels proportioned to sit adjacent to the large aluminium sliding doors that provide access to the long rear garden. The fibre cement allows the new extension to appear as a large monolithic block in stark contrast to the original yellow London stock brickwork.
Internally finishes include a mix of engineered Oak flooring, sprayed matt white kitchen cabinetry, quartz stone worktop and concrete floor tiles both internally and extending out on the rear patio. The contrast of lush green planting against the black cladding creates a striking contrast providing more texture, definition and shadow to the flush rear facade.
