Terraced terrace is the extension of a 60s house in southeast London. Nimtim architects decided to extend the limits designing a garden, a patio, an light entrance, and an enviable space.
Terraced terrace, how to expand a house
Terraced terrace is an ingenious intervention that is organized on the ground floor extending the brick walls, creating a living room, and office and, designing an exit to the outside. A surprising result appears when you sit at the table, look out the window and hear the whisper of time.
The walls are designed with bricks to continue the existing dialogue of the facade. The reddish colour of the brick, although some are new with the arrival of Terraced terrace, remain in the memory of the family. The parquet floor draws an amusing herringbone rhythm. Wood and brick is a warm cold contrast, an icy fireplace, a bittersweet.
Sunlight goes hard through the windows. The windows have a look to the tradition with the wooden frames dancing with the delicate transparent glasses. The inner ambiences also wears clean colours like blue and white which refresh and expand spaces.
Terraced terrace is an example of how to change our daily lives with the design, grace, creativity and ideas. This living room and office become the preferred housing space. Nimtim architects has the secret.
