House + House, North West London
RHA has completed the radical transformation of a home in a North-West London conservation area. In a city where land is scarce and house prices are rising ‘House + House’ offered a solution for densifying low-rise semi-detached residential plots that could no longer be extended individually. By amalgamating two houses into one, these combined dwellings offered the house owners and their family additional living space without the need to relocate from their existing home.

Tsuruta Architects fully refurbished the existing 1950’s end of terrace house and extended it with the addition of a single-story timber annex. The large garden came with 9 different adjacent landowners and three beloved mature trees, all of which influenced the proposal.

The Picture House was derived from a clear client brief for a rear extension- maximise the proportion of the glazing to the rear facade, and in turn minimise the appearance of the other constructed elements. Through considered architectural detailing, the roof structure and drainage details are visually independent of the large-format sliding doors, allowing the glazing to sail in front of the structure.

Using bricks reclaimed from the fabric of the house, the architects exploited the rights of light diagram to create a staggered, extruded form that appears to melt away from the existing structure. This rhythmic stepping generated by the brick is echoed throughout the interior, and is integrated in both the plan and section of the extension.
