The lower flat in this Camden terrace was extended on two floors, with a full refurbishment throughout. At first floor, the upper flat was extended to provide a new kitchen for the second client, opening up the space for living and dining. The dark grey bricks in a stacking bond are distinct while complimenting the existing London stock, paired with salmon pink aluminium panels adding a splash of colour to the rear elevation. A large roof light on the top floor allows light to flood into the space and creates fantastic views up to the sky.

The vertical extension creates a strong relationship with the garden over multiple levels, creating space to sit, step and look between inside and out – the large sliding glass doors are key to this connection. A reconfigured stair, and split level in the dining/reading room opens up the ground floor and provides space for an additional en-suite on the lower ground floor. Light is brought into these spaces using mirrored light wells, decorated with handmade Italian tiles.

Hood Canal Boat House and Cottage, Olympic Peninsula, Washington

This little building is the re-imagination of an existing boathouse that had no windows, one door, and no charm. It is conceived as a building that can turn itself inside out, offering a protective layer of concrete block and steel to the outside with the warmth of marine plywood on the inside.
