Starting on site

Works have started on this deep refurbishment and extension project in a conservation area on the Dulwich Estate, in Herne Hill.

The project creates a house that the owners can live in for the next 50 years. As a consequence, the house is significantly upgraded to a low-energy home, not only insulating and refurbishing the envelope but also making it air-tight, fitting renewables and alongside, create a cohesive and flexible family home.⁠

Kennington House featured in Dezeen today in a piece about statement skylights:⁠

An oversized skylight at the top of the stair brings daylight deep down into a narrow Victorian house. The colour palette celebrates the light by going from red to orange to yellow as you walk up to the top. ⁠

One Tree House approved!

Thrilled to have secured conservation area approval for this new low-energy house in Southwark!

The house is located adjacent to the One Tree nature reserve and replaces a tired small 1960s house which had been severely damaged beyond repair by subsidence. The new home adds a storey to better reflect the scale of the listed adjacent terraces. Due to the steep slope on the site the main living space is located at first floor, connecting to the rear garden. A roof garden at the top will give views through the trees onto central London.
