Cromwell Avenue, Highgate
Set on a leafy tree-lined London street in a conservation area, this large Victorian house has been fully refurbished and updated to create a relaxed, modern family home.
Due to planning constraints, work was primarily concerned with re-organising and transforming the interior of the house. But while the front elevation remains unaltered, we added a new, fully-glazed dining area at the back of the property.
It connects the principal family rooms and opens the house up to the south-facing garden. The glazed external sliding doors can be screened off at night, giving the space a warm feel in the evenings.
Moving upstairs, a large roof light inserted over the stairs filters daylight into the centre of the house.
The master bathroom consists of a series of paneled elements placed into the Victorian room. This preserves the room’s original features while allowing the modern fittings to sit delicately within the space.
Connecting the master bedroom and master bathroom is a piece of walnut furniture incorporating ‘his and hers’ walk-in wardrobes. Each wardrobe was individually designed to meet the clients’ specific requirements.
