Ealing House Extension

The Ealing Extension is a two-storey bronze addition to a house located in West London. The clients had been living in the house for a decade and felt that the kitchen and dining spaces were too cramped. They approached us with a request for a modern extension design that could accommodate their entertainment needs and provide ample space for family get-togethers. Additionally, they wanted the extension to unify the appearance of the house and create a better link with the garden which was one of the house’s prominent features.

House, Extension, Refurbishment, Conservation Area

To achieve this, we designed a crisp modern extension in bronze cladding that complements the existing red brickwork. The extension features an open-plan kitchen that extends directly to the garden, providing ample room for the whole family to gather. The deep, angled reveals in the bronze cladding provide depth and shading and support the structure. The bronze cladding also gives the extension a unique and beautiful feel, and it is highly durable, with a life span of over 100 years.

The house is located in a Conservation Area in Ealing, and getting permission for a modern design was challenging. However, we worked closely with the local planning policy and came up with design ideas that won the Conservation Officer’s support. Our design enhances the house and improves the flow of space throughout the home.

In addition to the kitchen and dining space, we also designed a new utility room and cloakroom on the first floor and a study area on the second floor with a picture window overlooking the garden. The design work included bespoke joinery for storage, and the refurbishment of the existing period hallway floor.

Our design was nominated for the Architects Journal Small Projects Awards 2016 as one of the best architectural designs for a house extension in London. You can view photos, details, and architectural drawings of our work on the AJ Awards page.
