Description:
This project consists of a new build 2-bed house in north Peckham. The site comprises a back-land plot within the block of back gardens behind Springall Street, Studholme Street, Asylum Road and Meeting House Lane. The site was occupied by a damp and cramped 1-bed single story house, which was converted from a light industrial unit in the 1980’s. The surrounding properties comprise attached pairs of two storey terraced houses, a single storey electrical substation, a bland two storey 1960’s clergy house and the soaring copper roof and sculptural bell tower of St. John With St. Andrew Parish Church. Set back from the street, the site is surrounded on three sides by gardens. To the south there is a high brick wall separating the site from the church yard. The client had owned the site for many years, and appointed us to see if it could be re-developed to provide a better quality, larger residential unit. In consultation with the council we developed a design that met all the Residential Design Standards, provided generous internal spaces with good quality natural light and views whilst minimising the visual impact and loss of amenity on neighbouring properties. The elevations are composed of load bearing masonry (blue engineering brick), the roof is an extensive living roof, incorporating wild flower meadow mix pre grown turf. Internally, the new roof is be formed using glue laminated beams, which are to be continued externally as pergolas designed provide visual screening to adjacent properties. These pergolas will connect the architectural language of the expressed beams with the boundary fence and gate forming the principle street elevation. To reduce the visual impact on the neighbouring gardens the height on the boundaries is limited to a maximum of 2m, and the roof slope is limited to a 22.5º. Following the collapse of tender negotiations, we formed a new sister construction company (Green & Teggin Projects Ltd), to manage the build.

Description:
We bought 28 Lausanne Road in the autumn of 2006. Although the top of the house had been well renovated, the remainder of the house required a lot of work. Considering the existing form and structure and our limited budget, we decided that the most efficient way to extend would be to demolish the rear wall and construct a full width extension across the back to provide an open plan family room / kitchen with views to the garden. This form also created the opportunity for a courtyard that allowed us to retain the original window to the existing rear living room, and provided a view from this room all the way through the garden room and down the garden. The project includes open plan kitchen/living area with a trap door in the bedroom floor above that opens to create a double height space. A sky space roof light, a wood burning stove, external insulation and Siberian Larch cladding, a roof garden, solar water heating and second hand London Stock bricks. The second phase of this project, completed in 2017, added a full width rear dormer to create two mezzanine bedrooms for our two children. The house is located on a busy road and we were keen to relocate all bedrooms to the rear of the building, overlooking the large green area behind. To do this, we created two mezzanine bedrooms, with the sleeping areas overlooking the garden whilst the study areas below faced the main road. We installed secondary glazing to all front windows and included an acoustic layer beneath the new roof to reduce noise levels from the street. We also installed a ventilation system that pumps air into the front rooms supplying them with clean, fresh air from the garden.

Description:
This project consists of a ground and first floor rear extension to a semi-detached, double fronted, 7 bedroom Victorian house with a large southeast facing garden backing on to Brenchley Gardens. The clients had recently bought the property with planning permission for a generic full width rear extension. They appointed us to improve on the design, which included significant structural intervention, (to retain the first floor outrigger), unacceptably low ceiling heights to the dining area and excessive depth in plan (leaving minimal natural light and ventilation available for the existing rear reception room). The existing design also failed to take into account an existing boundary wall, which would create a pinch point restricting access to the rear garden. We developed proposals to deal with these issues. Our design included extending the stair and rebuilding the outrigger at a higher level to increase the available ceiling height to the ground floor dining area. We stepped the new unattached flank wall to maintain side access to the garden, and provide natural light and ventilation to the existing rear reception room. We introduced a skew in plan to the main dining space, which provided a better balance between the living and utility spaces. The design also included a window seat area adjacent to the kitchen, which is at the same level as an intermediary terrace to the garden. At first floor level, the rebuilt rear addition serves as a study space with a large garden facing oriel window seat. This room was designed as flexible breakout space to the landing, with discrete bi-fold fire doors providing lots of natural light to the stair and hall. The case officer, and Southwark Conservation and Design department think “the current proposal is a significant improvement in comparison to the previously approved scheme” and are recommending approval.

Description:
This project consists of a loft conversion, side extension, internal refurbishmen, and landscaping to an end of terrace 1970’s house in Crystal Palace Road East Dulwich. The original house had been constructed to a standard design that failed to take advantage of its end of terrace location. The brief was to use the site opportunities to turn a common house type into a unique home. The client was keen on a pragmatic but respectful attitude to the original house, enhancing its better qualities and integrating the new work with the original form as closely as possible. The loft is open plan (including the stair from the first floor) with an en-suite steam shower, and dormer with large sliding windows and great views. The existing first and ground floor were remodelled, enlarging the entrance hallway by relocating the WC to the middle of the plan, creating a small utility behind, introducing space saving sliding doors, enlarging window openings, and making large new openings into the side extension. The side extension was conceived of as a timber frame and timber clad structure slotted into the void between the exposed brick of the boundary wall and the existing house. It includes large sliding doors to open up the space to the front courtyard and rear garden, and a central mirrored roof light to bring light into the depth of the plan. The front courtyard, bike shed and cladding all make reference to the existing black stained palisade to the existing timber porch.

Description:
This project comprises excavation and underpinning an entire end or terrace Victorian house in west Peckham. The existing house occupies a difficult, steeply sloping wedge shaped site. It has been previously extended at the rear by a previous owner, and partially refurbished more recently by the clients. The design provides a new lower ground floor guest bedroom / study, utility room and a second bathroom that is future proofed for separation and conversion to a studio flat at a later date. At the back of the hose we are lowering the floor level to the rear addition match that of the main house and extending over the side return with a structural glass roof to provide a large open plan kitchen / dining / living space with sliding doors out to an enlarged terrace area the rear garden.

Description:
The brief for this project was to design an extension that would link more effectively with the garden and bring more light into the grand dining room. Our clients, Carolyn and Paul Winstanley (a well regarded photo realist painter), were keen to develop a highly contemporary design. A slot of glass runs across the roof and down the side elevation separating the new extension from the existing building, and positioned to allow light deep into the plan of the existing house. To prevent overlooking from the neighbour’s roof terrace through a glass roof, we used deep timber beams to support the glass and obstruct the oblique view into the extension. These beams were rebated to conceal a green roof flush with the glass, and routed on the underside to accommodate strips of LEDs lighting. By enlarging the opening from the dining room into the new extension and positioning the doors appropriately, it is now possible to see right down the garden from the front door. The design includes bronze anodised aluminium bespoke guttering, window reveals and window frames that act together to discretely channel rainwater from the glass roof to below ground. It also includes black stained larch cladding and highly insulating Heat Mirror glass to reduce solar gain and internal UV light. The project was entered to the AJ small projects prize and is featured in the AJ Buildings Library. The project was realised in close co-operation with Architecturall design and build contractors .

Description:
150 Turney Road is a large semi detached Victorian property within the Dulwich Estate. This is the second property we have worked upon for the client couple, who had previously lived in East Dulwich. They wanted rearrange the ground floor and extend to the rear to accommodate a kitchen diner, a WC and a utility room in addition to the two reception rooms already there. They also wanted to convert the attic to accommodate a master bedroom and en-suite. Keeping the structural modifications to a minimum, we demolished the existing lean-to conservatory and scullery and are building a large, full width garden room that connects to the new kitchen. The WC and utility room were positioned deep within the floor plan, as these are the rooms that require least natural light. A glazed slot in the roof separates the new green roof from the existing building and allows light to filter deep into the plan. A new wood burning stove provides a focal point for the room. The attic room exploits the fantastic views over Dulwich sports ground and Belair Park and has a dressing room, storage and a large top lit bathroom.

Description:
This project was for a 5th floor roof extension to a four storey early Victorian semi-detached town house in an Islington Conservation Area. The Conservation Area rules were very restrictive (no construction to be visible to the front above the parapet). The height of the project also imposed technical challenges with regard to compliance with the fire and building regulations. We developed a lightweight timber frame in conjunction with the engineer that worked with the existing proportions of the structure and could be constructed above the existing flat whilst the clients remained in the property. The stepped section maximised the available headroom and the design included a self cleaning glass slot wrapping over the roof, pre weathered zinc cladding, a walk in wet room and high quality Schüco slidingdoors The result is a flexible south-east facing extension and roof terrace with fantastic views over London.

Description:
This project consists of a rear extension to a semi-detached house in Beckenham. The existing property was a three storey Victorian semi detached house with a poorly constructed rear extension that the owners, both art historians, wished to replace. Our brief was to provide a better connection between the house and the garden, bring as much light as possible into the house and to design a discreet utility area within the existing footprint. They clients were keen to have a very modern looking extension that contrasted with the existing house. The design includes deep glue laminated timber beams, green roof flush with shallow pitch roof glazing and concealed gutters and downpipes etc. The structure was formed using a single leaf of Porotherm clay blocks, and we introduced a cantilevered corner window. The design includes a glass slot across the roof to separate the new from the old. As with most of our projects we were careful to retain and reflect as much of the existing structure as possible, lining up new openings with openings designed for the original house. Initially the client considered using a whole room as the utility are. However, with careful planning and relocation of a doorway, it was possible to retain the original kitchen as a children's play room with a utility cupboard concealed with sliding doors down one wall. The project was realised in close co-operation with Architecturall design and build contractors.
