To celebrate The London Homebuilding & Renovating and Home Improvement Show at Olympia from 26–28 of September, Real Homes shares a selection of the best home projects the capital.
After living in their penthouse apartment for six years, the owners decided to extend upwards to gain access to their roof. The result was a modern glass flat roof extension and large decked garden, housing an open plan bedroom and bathroom.
With a growing family, the couple living in this 1960s house decided to create their dream open-plan kitchen/living area. They extended their home to provide an Edwardian-inspired orangery style living area with space for their kitchen, dining room and living room.
This 1950s home has been dramatically remodelled with a design inspired by the owners’ previous property, which is a Huf Haus. While location and plot size were perfect, the layout did not work for them, so they built up and out to reconfigure their space.
Seeking more space, the couple who bought this end-terrace Victorian house removed its butterfly-like ‘London roof’ and replaced it with a ‘mansard roof’ to create an extra storey for a luxury cinema room. In doing so, they also gained spectacular views across the city.
Once perfect for the couple living here, their three bedroom Victorian terraced home became less practical when their family began to grow. Instead of a lengthy search for an affordable property, they opted to extend their kitchen and loft.
