Uffington Road, SE27

House Refurbishment, West Norwood, London

For this house refurbishment, an Edwardian semi-detached property with a deep plan required re-planning to maximise the existing space and create a better relationship between the kitchen and garden areas, and to improve insulation and provide new bathrooms.

The existing external WC lean-to was demolished and a new ground floor extension constructed with three large sky lights introducing natural daylight via a new structural opening into the previously darkened living room. A larger opening was created to the rear elevation giving greater visibility into the garden which was re-landscaped.

The central area of the house was converted to provide a new wet room, coat storage, utility room and boiler cupboard. Under floor heating was installed to the existing floors throughout the ground floor area and new double glazed sash windows installed. A new bathroom was created at first floor.
