KING'S AVENUE | London SW19 | completed












remodelling of Victorian house interior
under £300 000
6 month contract period

This project seeks to create an openness unfamiliar within Victorian houses whilst maintaining an overall sense of weight and solidity. Original detail was restored as appropriate.
Beyond the obvious measure of removing cross walls, work was also done around the main staircase to increase kitchen space at ground level and to create an open plan ensuite bathroom at first floor level. Previously accessed off the stair landing as a study, the new bathroom is set at a lower level than the master bedroom and conceived as being carved from limestone. Generally, new wall openings are proportioned to maintain wall solidity and mass. Small cellular spaces are also created and concealed around the stair to accommodate utility and washroom functions.
