Large family living and entertaining spaces were top of the wish list for our clients who purchased this period property in North London. So the house was transformed – stripped back to the shell of the external walls and then extended at garden, raised-ground and first-floor levels, creating a new dwelling, some 78% larger than the original. The design team then created an integrated scheme for the new home, including a studio in the garden, large kitchen/family/reception spaces at garden and ground levels and then a series of bedroom suites, crowned by a penthouse loft with a wonderful view of the Wembley Arch.
