The Timber Frame Extension

This is a small side return extension to a Victorian terraced house in the heart of Camden Town. With space at a premium, we designed an inside-out lightweight exposed timber frame construction that creates a working wall incorporating services, shelving and recesses between the structure in the clients new dining area.

A large pivot door opens out into the garden, working alongside the glazed roof to provide a light and airy addition.

We have worked closely with the clients to achieve a low-cost yet design-led scheme to improve their home. A stripped back approach and simple palette of materials create a contemporary space for the clients to enjoy.


This project was published in the June 2015 edition of Grand Designs Magazine in their Extensions Special.
