Brent House Road / Nissen Richards Studio

Brent House Road by Nissen Richards Studio

Brent House Road is a renovation project completed by Nissen Richards Studio, a London multi-disciplinary design practice that specialises in architecture, exhibition, graphic and theatre design.

This refurbishment of a late Victorian terraced house in Hackney included the reconfiguration of the existing ground floor and a new rear extension containing kitchen and dining spaces. With the introduction of additional permitted development rights we have experienced a greater freedom in the ability to infill the classic closet wing arrangement and extend across the full width of existing properties. In this instance we very much enjoyed making the new element appear as a solid masonry form that has then been hollowed out to create the new spaces within.

The use of grey brickwork to the walls and roof covering was chosen to contrast with the existing London Stock and emphasise the metamorphosis of the property. A large glazed opening that can open fully enables the rear of the house to connect directly with the garden as well as bringing additional daylight deep into the plan.
