Battledean Road, Highbury
The owners wanted to reconfigure their Victorian terraced house to suit the needs of their growing family. The house was extended vertically into the roof to make an attic den with new and incredible views across the city. The ground floor was also extended to the rear and opened up internally. The result is a single large open plan space linked fully to the garden and subtly divided to provide different settings for day-to-day family life. The palette of materials is natural and warm, with oak for floors and external cladding and simple plywood joinery.
