Comprehensive remodel of a Victorian terraced house in Clapham, South London.  The project included the complete strip out and replacement of all internal fixtures and finishes, the rearrangement and refit of all bathrooms and kitchen, and front and rear garden redesign. 

A key challenge of the client’s brief was to get more light into the property, which was achieved through several modern glass insertions – a large rooflight at the top of the stairs brings light down into the centre of the property, a large glazed pivot door connects the kitchen to the courtyard garden, and the existing conventional bay window in the side return was replaced with a triangular glazed box, to provide space for a dining table and increase the natural light levels in a dark north-facing part of the building.
