On the popular Malvern Road near London Fields in the English capital city stands a beautiful Victorian house that has been redesigned and extended by Ivanov Versteeg Architecture.
They used a concrete, cedar, and iroko material palette inside the four-bedroom Victorian house, creating the perfect blend of colder and warmer materials. Like many Victorian houses, the home has been extended in the back to create a larger living kitchen. Floor-to-ceiling windows and a skylight turn this extension into a bright space.
The house has three floors that smoothly link to peaceful outdoor areas. There’s a terrace on the upper ground floor and a private garden. This garden has specially-made concrete designs and lots of grown plants.
The open-plan kitchen and dining space in the new extension is the heart of the home. Along one wall, Ivanov Versteeg added a sustainably-forested cedar paneling with a large skylight above.
The cedar paneling creates a wonderful accent wall while also adding warmth to the space that mainly uses light and harder materials.
The kitchen is made of deep concrete worktops with a marble splashback and Fisher & Paykel appliances. The kitchen also has a large-format island and a bespoke floor-to-ceiling integral larder.
Floor-to-ceiling windows and bi-fold door connect the kitchen with the outdoors.
Behind the cedar door lies a utility/laundry room.
At the front of the house lies a small sitting room with a dark-stained herringbone floor and sage-green walls.
The two larger rooms on the first floor have been opened up to create a large master bedroom with a dressing room. The bedroom has a beautiful sash window with the original shutters.
The dressing room has been fitted with Shaker-style wardrobes and built-in shelves.
The smallest room on the first floor opens up to the roof terrace. The room has a custom-made plywood desk and a tactile cork wall.
One floor up are two more bedrooms and a family bathroom.
