Paddington Alterations and Additions


Alterations and additions to a Paddington terrace. The works involved modifying the 3 bed, 1.5 bath house into a 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath house, including extending into the attic space and incorporating a concrete garage with roof garden off the back lane. Featuring Blackbutt timber throughout the house in a range of applications from structural, flooring, joinery and detailed carpentry applications, the design aimed to create a contemporary but warm family home with the resilience for a growing family. Working within the well established terrace typology, the design made several interventions into the existing fabric to integrate the traditional ‘shot-gun’ side corridor into the rooms where possible, with the new rear additions taking a more contemporary open plan approach.
