DesignBox Architecture has completed work for the extension of two adjacent terrace houses on the Rowan Park Estate, London SW16. For each house, the living room and dining rooms were extended to meet the existing back line of the house.
The Rowan Park Estate was completed in 2014 following the Government's Design for Manufacture Competition. The estate is an acclaimed example of building to high standards of environmental sustainability. As an extension project it was not a convention build. Careful attention needed to be paid to the existing building fabric to ensure properties of air tightness, thermal resistance and acoustic separation were maintained and enhanced. Building systems and external materials were used to match the original build.
The works added 20m2 to each house and some much needed living space for two growing families.
