London based practice Nimtim Architects have extended a 1950’s terraced house located in Peckham, London. The new extension to the old house adds a bigger and more usable kitchen and dining area with a direct connection to the rear garden area.
From the architects, “Nimtim proposed an addition formed with a series of lightweight timber portals running both front to back and side to side. The timber structure defines a series of openings along the roof and onto the rear garden. This timber grid extends both into the garden and into the house blurring the boundary between inside and out. The enclosed part of the extension steps in plan, reflecting the historic footprint of the site and allowing the garden to extend into the living space.”
