Double height crittall style extensionEclectic Living Room, London
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Here, you can see the lower-ground floor of this interesting, newly created space, where an open-tread staircase with a glass balustrade adds a light touch to the open-plan living room. Two sets of French windows within the glazing – one on either side of the brick column – open to the garden.This part of the house is, in fact, the basement of this terraced property. Above it is the kitchen, on the ground floor (see next photo). There was already a dark, single-storey space at the rear of the building. “We needed to find a way to effectively connect the floors into a single, useable space that felt like one room, and create a superb live-work area, not just a ‘bolt-on addition’,” explain the architects at Holland Green.The result floods the house with light, has a feature bookcase that helps to connect the two floors visually, and gives both new spaces a strong connection to the garden.
