Intervention Architecture for private client

Deft interventions have transformed this humble 1970s bungalow, enhancing its outward appearance and unlocking space within. The architect remodelled the roof and introduced a parapet to give sharper definition to the street facade, which is echoed in a full-width brick extension to the rear.
The new roof also allows generous, open spaces inside, where a hard-working plan divides the house into three zones: living areas in the middle, with bedrooms and utility spaces to either side. Suspended ceilings were removed to reveal the sloping roof form, and the cramped interior now feels bright and spacious. The centrepiece is a lofty family room, complete with a children’s mezzanine formed in birch plywood. Honey-toned flooring and bespoke walnut joinery lend texture and warmth, and give the house its name.
