This addition to an existing Paddington terrace takes advantage of level differences across the site to develop a new underground room at the back of the site. The design utilises a 7 metre feature wall based on a ribbon geometry flowing directly into the courtyard and creating an aesthetic as well as functional link between the historic existing terrace house and the overtly modern new addition. The feature wall will be well lit at night and act as a light reflector in the day, bouncing light into the courtyard and activating this space with its subtle geometries. Planting will be encouraged and a vertical green wall will cool in summer. This will be a “secret garden” in an urban setting.
Purpose: Residential extension
Size: 150 sqm
