Park Road Contemporary Extension, Crouch End

Contemporary glass box extension to mid terrace house.

Capturing light and creating new living spaces

This project consisted of a contemporary glass box extension to the rear of a mid terrace house in Crouch End, north London.

The existing ground floor contained a rather dark and cramped kitchen and breakfast room closet wing. Our design solution to improve this space and the connection between the house and garden was to add a rear extension to allow for a larger, more usable kitchen and a light filled sitting area opening out in to the garden through a full height structural glass box.  

The back of the house essentially lifts outwards and upwards into the outside space – it just disappears. The boundary between the inside and the outside is gone. This is what you get from people with vision who see things that you don’t.

Client Testimonial

A composition of glass and zinc

The zinc clad roof and walls of the new extension connects back to the brick walls of the existing building.

The flank wall of the extension incorporates a hidden utility room cupboard which projects out in to the side passage of the garden.

The structural glass box projects out from this and finishes above the zinc clad roof and secret gutter in order to allow light to penetrate deep in to the house. 

A new patio garden area

We designed a new patio including raised planters for the rear garden.

This area is finished in the same floor tiles as the new rear sitting area and kitchen in order to create a seamless connection between the garden and house.  

Our work also included the detailed design and specification of the extension and new kitchen, finishes and lighting scheme and full project management and contract administration.  


The development is located in Crouch End, North London.
