South Hill Park

This remodeled zinc extension ground floor flat, located in a conservation area, now has a lively new identity and provides additional space for contemporary family life.

A new angular rear zinc extension stretches into the garden and creates a sense of enclosure around a new terrace. A former garden store has been reclaimed as a second bathroom, while an awkward area between the house and a neighbouring building has also been brought inside as a third bedroom.

The angular plan is mirrored in the roofline, and the extension is clad entirely in carefully detailed dark zinc – a contemporary material that contrasts well with the brick of the original building. Full height doors and windows open onto the terrace, and create a light and airy interior. A new kitchen and high specification bathrooms sit alongside sensitively restored period features such as plaster cornices, window shutters and fireplaces. A new dark timber floor and light decorative palette complete the transformation.
