Mapledene Road: Platform 5 Architects

This rundown property had been stripped of virtually all its period features and was used as a crack den

Platform 5 Architects opened up the cellular ground floor with an extension to the rear, allowing spaces to flow into each other and the garden. A glass oriel window lined with cherry wood projects into the garden and corresponds with the Victorian bay window facing the street. The expansive glass roof over the kitchen opens up the view to the sky.

In the kitchen, overheating and glare is managed by shading from the surrounding buildings and trees, high thermal mass, the use of solar control glass and blinds.
