Inglis Badrashi Loddo Architects: Renfrew Road, London
Restoration projects are all well and good in post-industrial warehouses and derelict Victorian terraced houses, but updating a 1960s council house is a different kettle of fish. Jamal Badrashi and Kim Loddo of Inglis Badrashi Loddo undertook such a mission for their Renfrew Road home, creating a rear extension, adding a rooftop skylight, and opening up the central stairwell. The building nestles in a row of ex-council townhouses and, despite new aluminium windows on the its exterior, the alterations only carry the existing structure so far, and much of the interest
is in the interior.
