The existing house, is the home of a family with two young children. The former ground floor layout was biased towards the front of the house. A playroom, dining space and kitchen were arranged within an undefined open space, oriented towards the street and the party wall of a neighbouring extension. The brief was to reconfigure and extend the ground floor in order to improve the connection to the garden.Save this picture!© Stale EriksenThe new ‘garden room’ inverts the former street-facing layout. Benefiting from the afternoon light, this space forms the new heart of the house, incorporating kitchen, dining and play area for the children. The kitchen layout is turned 90 degrees to face the garden.Save this picture!Existing Floor PlanSave this picture!Floor PlanThe flank and rear walls of the original extension were removed at ground floor level in order to accommodate the new extension with side return. The space is tectonically defined by the new structural elements, which bear the load of the floor above.Save this picture!© Stale EriksenThe former bay window arrangement was reinterpreted as one large opening with a deep window seat, corresponding with the depth of the first floor bay window. A movable oak framed window allows the space to open towards the terrace. The children’s toys are stored in large drawers underneath the upholstered window bench. Save this picture!© Stale EriksenSave this picture!A generous roof light, along the length of the room, washes the new party wall with natural daylight. Level access to the garden is via a 1.2m wide and 2.5m high timber framed glass door.Save this picture!© Stale EriksenThe existing narrow outdoor terrace was enlarged to form a patio. The pre-cast concrete window sill and masonry plinth serve as seating areas, while a new timber fence structures the garden and was designed to form a back rest along the masonry bench.Save this picture!© Stale EriksenThe former drawing room was reinstated in its original shape and new ancillary functions, grouped in the central area of the plan.Save this picture!© Stale EriksenLime washed masonry, precast concrete, and white oiled oak were used throughout. Precast concrete was used for the sill, lintel and copings. The precast elements are composed of white limestone aggregates and white cement, and sandblasted to a rough finish. The structural components were clad in oak veneer internally, matching the floor boards and built-in furniture. The work surfaces in the kitchen are formed of single concrete slabs with exposed aggregates and a honed finish.Project gallerySee allShow less71 Thousand High-Res Historical Maps Available for Free DownloadArchitecture NewsThis World Record Breaking Bridge is Made Entirely from LEGOArchitecture News Share Photographs “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/797663/harvey-road-erbar-mattes Clipboard CopyHouses, Renovation•London, United Kingdom 2016 Area:  100 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project center_img Year:  Harvey Road / Erbar MattesSave this projectSaveHarvey Road / Erbar Mattes Architects: Erbar Mattes Area Area of this architecture project Projects Environmental Engineering Partnership CopyAbout this officeErbar MattesOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationLondonEnglandUnited KingdomPublished on October 20, 2016Cite: “Harvey Road / Erbar Mattes” 20 Oct 2016.
