Elmhurst Avenue House in London
Residential Extension Project in South East England – design by Iguana Architects
17 Aug 2019
Elmhurst Avenue House
Design: Iguana Architects
Location: London, England, UK
Using the principles of Biophilic design Iguana Architects created a new and improved home, Elmhurst Avenue House, for their musical clients and their growing family.
Maximizing natural daylight, integration of a green roof, use of natural materials and textures were all part of our health and wellbeing design strategy for the family.
In using these principles to design the new loft, rear extension and refurbishment of almost the entire interior gave the clients a home that they have fallen in love with.
Iguana Architects are very pleased to have pushed the boundaries of the planning system to achieve this unique home.
“I have simple tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.” Oscar Wilde.
In addition to this wonderful quote, the clients asked for a home design that would help them try to find some sort of relaxation and calm, views to nature and to get natural daylight in the mornings and afternoons. A challenge when you consider that this is a north facing house.
The formal brief was to create a 5m rear extension and open plan kitchen, dining and living area, but the extension had to allow for morning and afternoon light. In addition we had to add two additional bedrooms in the loft as the family were expecting their third child. All of this and the internal refurbishment had to be done under the £200,000 mark which was a bit of challenge
