Hoxton Property

Britain has an enormous stock of traditional terraced houses, which increasingly struggle to meet the needs of contemporary living – clearly a significant challenge. This typical four-storey London terraced house is a case in point, characterised by multiple levels and cramped dark rooms set around a winding staircase. The clue to realising the full potential of this house came in the small rear yard.

The lower-ground and ground floors have been unified by the addition of a double-height extension, just one-metre deep. This has allowed the ground floor to be pulled away from the existing rear wall, uniting the living spaces on both floors with a modest double-height volume.

This project achieves a delightful sense of space and light that is hard to believe possible in a house of this type.
