Reform of Victorian house in Islington (London)
This is a project of enlargement and reform of a Victorian house located in a protected area of Islington (London), in which the main objective was to improve the relationship inside the House with the backyard, which accessed from storage room located between the semi-basement level and floor – view photos below.
The difference between flat before and after the performance is quite clear. The surface which has spread has been on the lower level (semi-basement), which in turn has generated a new terrace towards the rear of the House, ground floor level. The more important has been the dimension of the backyard has been lowered to organize a Garden Gate, allowing direct access from the semi-basement, thing that previously did not exist. But this movement has been accompanied by the addition of a room to be beyond the kitchen, an area that has not only glazed front, it also presents a beautiful skylight on the edge.
Although in principle this could be understood as a manoeuvre to the detriment of the kitchen, the truth is that, thanks to the hollow open towards new room (and to the skylight above), still comes daylight from the courtyard, but it should also be noted the white paint both spaces help quite. The upper floors have also been some improvement, creating a library room on the ground floor, and adding a bath in the master bedroom.
The new the semi-basement room has a wooden desk in the new ground concrete patio with a large sliding Windows. This looks very good, but we are concerned that in the days of intense rain water end of finding some glimmer where strain.
This expansion and reform is a project of Tamir Addadi Architecture. Seen on designboom.
