Today we will show you a beautiful extension to a 1930s house in London, a project by Jones Associates Architects. The extension adds a contemporary look to a traditional house. Not only that but it also gives the house some charming spaces and a lot of natural light. The use of glass, wood and white elements is really beautiful. Take a look.
Make sure to check out Jones Associates Architects website for further information about this and other inspiring projects. See you next week. :)
Description from the architects: This detached 1930s house in north London, virtually unaltered since the previous owners bought it in 1965, was transformed into a spacious, light-filled home for the clients and their four children. The ground floor was substantially extended and reconfigured to create a series of dynamic living spaces oriented towards the large, south-facing garden.
The whole house was entirely refurbished and refitted, while the roof was reconstructed and extended to provide two additional bedrooms and a bathroom. A palette of new materials – pre-weathered zinc sheet, Welsh slate copings, sedum green roofing and basalt paving – complement the original red brickwork and tiles.
We found this house at Contemporist.
