The Camberwell House, Camberwell, London

This Victorian house is situated in a leafy part of London and has all the ingredients of a beautiful period home. The owners were keen to bring it back to life and extend with a keen eye on the 'vintage' feel of found and restored finishes.

The extension design resembles a glass house with the dining room sitting between the original building spaces and the new extension.

An exposed structure clearly supports the building above, celebrating ways in which you can open up and remodel period buildings.

By broadening the opening between the original house and a typical side infill extension, we were able to design an area for eating that is broader than in a traditional form of layout.

The garden design was of particular importance and we worked with Ula Maria Studio to connect the walled garden with the dining room and kitchen.

The floor finish in the kitchen is an externally used material and enhances the feeling that the kitchen sits within a glass house.

The green of the frame to the glazing continues on the front windows, garden planters, garden furniture and is even applied to the drainpipes.

Fraher & Findlay provided a full design/architectural service for this project.
