Project Garden, Herne Hill

Project Garden is the result of the refurbishment of a ground floor flat that includes a wrap-around extension in South London.

The client made great emphasis on bringing natural light into the property and having a great connection to the existing garden.

An open plan kitchen, dining and living room conforms to the new wrap-around extension. Numerous rooflights were added to the scheme. It was proposed to expose the new timber joists in this area which were located under the new rooflights, offered visual privacy from above and diffused the natural light giving very interesting lighting into the new space.

A small patio was created to allow for additional natural light and ventilation to all adjacent roofs: kitchen, bathroom and main bedroom.

A new configuration for the bathroom allowed a view from the garden as soon as the client opened their main entrance door. A big pocket door separates the corridor space from the living room, allowing for these longitudinal views when the pocket door is open.

The use of new crittal doors and windows, concrete finish in the kitchen worktop and an exposed round column in the main open area, accentuated the client’s aspirations for an industrial-chic look.
