Victorian Terraced House Extension – design by Hayhurst and Co. / Lucy Carmichael

Design: Hayhurst and Co. in collaboration with Lucy Carmichael
RIBA Awards 2012 Citation:
Dalling Road London
This is an extension to a Victorian terraced house, a mere 10 square metres larger than the previous footprint of a dilapidated lean-to, from a brief which required a new family kitchen, dining and play space. The simplicity of the brief was however accompanied by a desire to use the opportunities afforded by the angled and tapering geometry of the site to playfully challenge the existing house’s Victorian order.
Externally the solidity of the angular form of the building is expressed in precisely detailed rough-hewn slate which reinforces the notion that the extension is sunk into the ground.
The result is a singular and very satisfying domestic environment which will long continue to intrigue and delight those who use it.
