A semi – detached Victorian family home in Fulham has been extended to the side and rear, and a basement excavated underneath, as well as being refurbished throughout. The new extensions allow double and triple height spaces to be created providing a sense of space flowing horizontally and vertically. Openings are designed to capture the sunlight and permit it to penetrate deep into the building. Sliding doors to the rear open at right angles and disappear into pockets, dematerialising the enclosure of the living room and making a seamless connection with the garden. The extension is a contemporary interpretation of the Arts and Crafts aspirations of the original house.
