Infill extension to a Victorian property

image1 (1)

Victorian terraced housing is often built with a main terrace, and semi detached ‘outrigger’ to the rear. This leaves a unused gap between the outriggers, and often makes the existing kitchen spaces dark, narrow and lacking accessibility to the garden. I’ve designed several ‘infill’ extensions to such properties, extending both sideways and into the garden.

This property was one example- A large kitchen diner now extends most of the width of the house, with bifolding doors. Steel beams are inserted to support the two storey section above, and a lean to roof with roof lights brings light and height to the space.

A small WC has been added, and the original window into the second reception room opened up to leave a free flowing home.

The owners have also built lovely wide, shallow steps, leading from the bifolding doors down into the garden level.
