Walthamstow, London

The new façade is eye-catching, very different to its context in its form and the materials used. The dark grey hue of the Viroc cladding provides a strong counterpoint to the background of earthy brick and tile of the neighbouring terraced houses.


Cladding panels are framed with fins which accentuate the two openings and give the façade body and depth. Below the large opening window, the brick skirting extends to meet a stone cill, set at work-top height to extend the kitchen into the garden.


The client is a food stylist who required a space which provides multiple options to create and photograph visually interesting and enticing dishes. She also loves to cook and to entertain and required a space which would allow her to do both at the same time.


Tall windows combined with a linear roof light, set at the rear of the extension, deliver natural light deep into the room. Retrofit insulation has been installed to the existing ground floor, external wall and loft to improve the energy efficiency of the property.


Internally, bespoke plywood joinery and micro-cement worktops provide a clean, contemporary aesthetic but also, importantly for our client, a low-cost, durable and practical interior.
