Brick Residence in London Showcases Glazed Timber Extension

Scenario Architecture took on the challenge of renovating this Victorian villa in London, United Kingdom. The clients own a flat inside this beautiful brick residence named “Clapton House”. They have been living here for a few years, but just recently decided to upgrade it.

According to the architects, the existing apartment had a very old glass conservatory, which was freezing cold in winter and overheated in summer. Because of a faulty layout, this structure was also blocking the light to the inner living room. However, the immense potential of the flat was obvious from the start: it had impressive dimensions and a wide back façade.

The project brief was initially seen as contradictory: “On one end our clients were after a modern open extension, which brings plenty of natural light to the living room, but at the same time, they wanted to respect the original proportions and separation of the spaces,” the architects said.  The requirements were met by building a glazed timber extension which accommodates the kitchen and dining area.

Further into the floor plan, the original back wall of the house remained intact with its windows and doors open, creating an internal balcony, and keeping the cozy and more private feel of the lounge. What are your thoughts on the architecture intervention on this Victorian villa in London?  [Information and photography courtesy of Scenario Architecture]
