Dominic McKenzie Architects recently received planning permission for a front, rear and roof extension to this house in Barnsbury Conservation Area.
To the front the existing lightwell will be expanded towards the pavement line to create a generous new subterranean space. To the rear a two storey extension will create a dramatic double height living / dining room with direct connection to the garden. And at roof level a large new open plan room containing master bedroom and bathroom will replace the existing flat roof.
The project has just started on site and is due to complete later this year.
