I find it odd to think years from now my grandchildren might learn about the COVID-19 pandemic and I’ll be able to answer questions about what happened

So many people talk of the desire to move or live other places, I’ve never had it. I love being right on the doorstep to the new forest, a short drive from beaches and with easy access o London. The only annoyance is how much it costs in rent to live here. One day we might be able to get a mortgage but it won’t be today or any day in the next couple of years!

The project provides a new two-storey rear extension to this Victorian terraced house in South London. The existing narrow kitchen extension on ground floor was remove and replaced with a new light filled kitchen and dining area. The ground floor is expanded sideways filling the entire width of the plot with reconfiguration of the existing internal layout to incorporate a washroom and generous arrival hall. Volumetrically, the ground and first floor extension is articulated into two distinct volumes constructed from a light coloured pigmented concrete block, which provide a subtle distinction from the main house. The windows in this new volume are made from oak, which has also been used in the interiors.
