Knolly’s Road, SW16

Located on a steeply sloping site in the London Borough of Lambeth, the domestic project at Knolly’s Road consists of an internal refurbishment and at ground floor rear extension. The design transforms a cramped Victorian kitchen into a light and spacious living space leading to a new terrace.

The key challenge was to accommodate the sloping site. New retaining walls to the garden create space for the terrace area linking with the existing garden stairs. Skylights, bi-folding doors and a fixed feature window frame views into the trees, garden and artist studio beyond.

The design consists of a new ground floor WC and kitchen layout with island at the center which creates a welcoming and functional space with plenty of storage. The new living space incorporates underfloor heating and allows for passive solar gain due to the new windows and roof lights, new floor, wall and roof insulation will reduce heat loss and subsequent energy use.
