Lansdowne Drive, Hackney E8 Side infill kitchen extension


This is a side infill kitchen extension project in Hackey E8, London Fields.

The original property was a 3 storey period terraced single family house located within the Broadway Market Conservation Area. The property and terrace back onto London Fields.

The proposal is a side infill extension at the rear to open up the existing small rooms to provide a large open plan kitchen & dining space that is open to the rear garden with good access and levels of daylight.

The extension is set at a lower level than the rear garden to align with the existing ground floor level. This reduces its height along the boundaries and avoids any detrimental impact on the neighbouring properties whilst aligning the ceiling of the proposed extension with the existing ceiling and providing for a good floor to ceiling height.

The extension external walls are built from yellow stock facing bricks selected to match the existing brickwork in appearance and bonding with brick arches and slim steel framed double doors opening to the rear.

A large roof window provides good daylight to the kitchen.

Private client, completed Autumn 2019
