Lipton Plant Architects developed an original brick extension for a mid-century home in Stoke Newington, London. Clonbrock Road is a two-level semi-detached house initially built in 1957. The addition stands out due to its pale-brick finish and cantilevered volume. Spacious and modern looking on the inside, it accommodates a living area across the ground floor, four upper-storey bedrooms and a wooden staircase that links the two levels. Large panes of frosted glass provide entrance points from the street side and also connect the interiors with the backyard.
The house tour will reveal quite a few interesting upgrades initiated by the architects: “Internally, the building is a combination of white oiled pine wood and white walls and ceilings. The original floors have been reused, sanded and received a white and clear oil finish. The skirtings and architraves have been ‘designed out’ and replaced with a flush frames and clear silicone bead. The bespoke kitchen in light pink with white oiled pine work top, the sink drainer uniquely set in, all hovering above the ground adding to the sense of space and openness.” What are your thoughts regarding this home extension in London?
