Town House - Dulwich

Restoration of a Victorian town house. Sustainable design incorporating insulated external walls, double glazed sash windows, underfloor heating and Micro-generation boiler to increase energy efficiency, rainwater harvester and grey water systems and open plan stair core to provide passive cooling and natural ventilation.

Ground and first floor rooms were reinstated using period marble surrounds and cast iron fireplaces, replica skirtings, four panel doors, engineered oak flooring and plaster cornice mouldings whilst the roof and lower ground floors were designed as contemporary additions.

The roof was rebuilt and a lead clad dormer and sleeping 'pod' added to provide a penthouse bedroom overlooking the extensive mature gardens. At lower ground floor, internal and external walls were removed and a glazed extension added to create a bedroom:en-suite 'annex', utility room and open plan kitchen and dining area. Sliding folding engineered oak doors, a flush sill and recessed drainage provide level access onto the external garden terrace.
