A three storey Edwardian property with a partial basement in the West Hampstead conservation area was extensively rebuilt and extended to provide a new contemporary home behind a retained façade. Internally, the house included eight bedrooms and six bathrooms; and in the newly constructed basement, a cinema, fitness room, play room and plant room were ticked away. Using lightwells, two guest bedrooms were created also.
A new centrally located top lit stair with new windows on half landings brings daylight into the heart of the home. In the entrance hall the open rise treads are cantilevered from a spine wall with a full height glass screen as a balustrade.
A 50m² family room with 3.3m tall double glazed bi-fold doors in a new rear extension overlooks the landscaped garden, which in turn cascades down into the basement, opening the children’s playroom and spare bedroom to the garden via full height sliding doors.
