Glass box extension to Victorian townhouse

David Blaikie Architects

Contract value: Undisclosed


A ‘glass box’ extension and remodelling of the ground floor rear rooms allows the new kitchen and dining spaces of this Category B listed Victorian townhouse to spill out into a south-facing garden. The remodelling of the rear rooms and modest extension is integrated with the overall refurbishment of the whole house.
