Townhouse in Hackney, London

Set across the lower two floors of this three storey London townhouse, the living spaces were disjointed and disconnected from each other.  We were asked to improve the relationship between the upper and lower ground floor spaces and to undertake a refurbishment of the building, concentrating primarily on the lower ground floor and the first floor bathroom.


A two storey space was created with two storey sash window and re-orientated staircase in whitewashed oak, to form a link between the upper and lower ground floor spaces.  A top-lit infill extension with large skylight sits at the back of the building with bespoke slim-profile timber-framed glazing, to give direct and immediate views to the garden, helping to reinforce the connection from inside to out.


A bespoke kitchen in oak and stainless steel, designed by Andrew Wood Associates, sits central to the plan, with a study and guest bedroom space sited toward the front of the building.  A foldaway bed is concealed within fitted furniture and sliding glazed and timber panelled doors afford the flexibility to open and close spaces as required.  The first floor bathroom was designed to mix the classic and contemporary, with roll top bath, timber floor boards and generosity of space and finish.


Construction was completed in 2021 and the main contractor was Ashview Contracts Limited.
