A London Family Home with a Light Modern Extension

The traditional Victorian façade of a London townhouse doesn’t reveal the modern and light extension that you’ll find at the back of the house. The extension is the work of architect Nick Elias who perfectly blended the historic architecture with a fresh modern update.

Nick Elias managed to create an extension that seamlessly flows from the original building to the new addition. Thanks to the simple and muted color palette, the natural materials like wood, limewash, micro-cement and glass take center stage.

The London family home boasts four bedrooms and two bathrooms in the Victorian part of the house. at the back lies a lovely garden which can be accessed through double glass doors in the kitchen extension.

The light extnsion is home to a loft style kitchen, dining, and seating area. The mono-pitch sky-lighting, an enticing window seat, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors flood the new addition with natural light.
