This is a very small project in West London. The existing building was of various ages and the idea of the new construction is to create a new storey within the shape of two rear large dormers.
Modest materials (MDF, plasterboard, stock bricks, timber studwork) were used and combined with oak floor boards, copper panels and large glass skylights. This combination was key to enhance the natural light within the house.
The copper panels acted as a reflective material that together with the colour of the sky and other elements like rain water generate a wide range of textures and colours onto the internal walls.
Consequently the inner spaces are filled with natural light and colours that change depending on the sky.
