Newington Green Residence North East London

The Newington Green Residence refurbishment provides a place of retreat in a busy urban environment. The period property has been tranformed inside and out to include a new charred timber bedroom extension along with a sympathetic refurbishment of the original dwelling. The internal spaces flow seamlessly to the terrace at the rear, effectively doubling the footprint of the apartment through the creation of an ‘outdoor living room’. Long grasses, climbing plants and slatted screens are positioned to provide a sense of enclosure and allow nature take over this part of the city.

Nicholas Kirk Architects’ brief was to provide an oasis away from the busy city and allow the owners space to relax and enjoy their surroundings.

The solutions were to make the most of the high ceilings to provide clever storage solutions. Use materials that would unite and tie the internal spaces to the exterior.

To provide a sympathetic restoration of the original building fabric along with contemporary materials. Space in this part of the city is at a premium, so Nicholas Kirk Architects needed to provide a design that would make the most of every ‘nook and cranny’.
