Stephen Turvill Architects: Stradella Road, London

This abstract kitchen extension at the back of a victorian family home provided a moment of unanimity for the Small Projects selection panel. The black line of the extension's frame creates a simple pitched roof, and the expanse of glazing adds a certain otherworldly quality, with the roof appearing to bear on the single column at the corner of a gravity-defying manner. The end 'gable' elevation is a full height double-glazed, and folding doors to the side allow access to a timber deck. Recessed gutter details add to the dramatic starkness.
