A project to create a space that is a focus of a vibrant family life. The project, located in Bromley south east London, transforms the existing house and garden, and with it how the home is lived in. Exhibited as part of the New London Architecture 2018 Don’t Move, Improve awards the house will be open as part of Open House on Saturday 21st September.
Ferndale is a project born out of a design process that involved the entire family. From a hidden work space for Mum, to a window seat for reading and new space for XBox for the kids, and a new barbecue terrace for Dad, the new space provides so much more than a typical kitchen/diner extension.
The ambition was to create a new focal point for family life. It was to be warm and welcoming, and sustainable in its creation. It was also to be closely connected to the garden, where much loved Magnolia, Acer and Pear trees come within touching distance of the extension.
The new space is articulated to reflect each different function. A utility and cloak/store is at the centre of the house, important for a busy family to keep tidy! The window seat provides a focal point that frames a view to the Acer in the garden. The kitchen is positioned centrally, with the work/study area adjacent, and dining and family areas are within the top lit new extension leading to the garden terrace.
Materials and finishes discussions explored a wide range of possibilities. Steel and concrete was minimised, and a highly insulated timber framed structure used, clad in precise burnt larch cladding that blends with the garden.
Window and door openings relate to a terrace seating area and raised border. Here the Magnolia is framed by steps to the garden, and together with the pear tree, create a beautiful natural canopy to the seating area.
Conibere Phillips provided a full architectural service, developing detailed design for tender and construction based on a traditional building contract.
