The project transforms a 1920’s suburban house, situated in a quiet residential area and with a lovely mature garden backing onto Chiswick House.

The scheme re-orientates the living spaces with an extension, clad with concrete panels. The panels are manufactured from glass-reinforced concrete, to form a vertical pattern becoming lighter towards the sky.

These are set against European oak windows which bring a crafted and warm quality to the building both inside and out.
