Hartham Road: Nissen Adams
Two small extensions to the rear of a four-storey Victorian house in Islington provide a dining annex and additional utility space
The extensions operate with different aesthetics. The first takes the form of a lead-wrapped volume with large, timber-framed glazed doors and a rooflight delineating the dining space below. The second, comprising garden store and sanitary facilities, is a refined garden shed clad in cedar.
The lines of the cladding extend to the ground as wood-cast concrete planks, returning up the far wall as a timber trellis. This wrap forms a route from dining space to garden, completed by rough-cast steps to lawn level.
