This Victorian house in London has recently been renovated and extended by A-Zero Architects into a spacious family home where historic elements meet modern architecture. What also sets this townhouse apart is the three outdoor spaces that have been created during the renovation work. There is an internal courtyard, a paved rear garden, and a rooftop terrace with views of the surroundings.
The combination of original elements and modern additions in this home is wonderful. The Victorian part of the house is home to the dining room and kitchen, while the extension houses the living room. Usually, when a historic house is extended, you see that the kitchen is placed in the extension, so it’s nice to see it the other way around.
Upstairs is a master suite with a dressing room and a bathroom, and there are three more bedrooms and an extra bathroom, so it’s perfect for a family.
The Victorian part of the house is home to the open-plan kitchen-dining room. The front part is home to the dining area with a large bay window, a fireplace, and built in bookshelves.
The bay window features shutters for privacy and a window seat with underneath storage.
At the rear you will find the kitchen with shaker style cabinets topped with quartz countertops. A short run of patterned tiles are placed in front of the cabinets so the parquet fllor doesn’t get damaged.
The entire ground floor has a parquet floor which adds a continious look between the old house and the new extension.
The living room sits a the back of the house and features Crittall-style glazing on two sides, looking out to the central terrace and to the garden at the rear.
The walls are painted in a light gray-blue shade which creaes a calm look and they are paired with large colorful artworks.
at the front of the house you’ll find the master bedroom with an entire wall of original sash windows with decorative stained-glass accents.
The master bathroom features moody gray walls paired with crisp white tiles. The large bathroom has a walk in shower and a freestanding bath in front of the window.
The second bedroom on the first floor gives access to the roof terrace.
