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.
The new extension has a gray-hued micro-cement flooring which is paired with lime-washed walls, finished in earthy pinks and light brown tones.
The modern kitchen is designed with a combination of blue and ash-fronted cabinets that are paired with a white worktop and brass fittings.
The ash-fronted cabinets are extended to the dining area where they transform into bench seating.
Ply door reveal linings lead you to the living rooms in the Victorian part of the house.
The living room is divided into two spaces with an oak floor that unite the two rooms. The front room is used as the formal sitting area with moody dark blue walls.
The other part of the living room is used as a home office/playroom.
On the first floor are two bedrooms. The master bedroom, at the front of the house, has moody dark gray walls paired with gray painted floorboards.
The family bathroom features geometric floor tiles that are paired with a freestanding clawfoot bath and a separate shower.
The small bathroom on the top floor has green walls and slanted ceilings.
