A Grade II listed Georgian end of terrace house in the New River Conservation Area benefited from a new contemporary side infill extension using minimally framed sliding glass doors and a complete modern renovation.

The aim of the development was to reconfigure the existing duplex maisonette to maximise its connection with the south-west facing rear garden and reconfigure the living accommodation across the ground floor.

A new glazed infill extension has been added which runs through into the existing 70's rear extension, together with new Innovare flush glazed windows to the existing extension for the flush finish against the traditional brick.

The structural glass roof to the side infill extension, supported with a slim steel T section, seamlessly connects the old traditional building with the new contemporary extension.

The minimally framed sliding glass doors create an idyllic connection with the garden whilst providing primary access. The slim 21mm sightlines maximise views and natural light into the modern extension. 

A great design feature for this renovation project was the oriel window seat in the kitchen. The design of the boxed window seat is frameless and minimal, providing an additional area for an influx of daylight into the kitchen area. 

The minimal design aesthetics of the renovation project provides bright light-filled open plan living spaces.

As well as carefully preserving the traditional features of the grade II listed property.
