David Mikhail's Hackney revamp named best London extension

An overhaul of a Victorian House in Hackney, featuring a one metre-deep glass extension, has won the NLA’s second annual Don’t Move, Improve! competition

The Hoxton House by David Mikhail Architects was praised by contest judges for its ‘incredible economy of space and for its coherent, simple and uncluttered design’.

The competition to find the capital’s best reworked home and cleverest extensions was run together with the London Development Agency, the Mayor of London, and RIBA London

An exhibition showcasing all 50 shortlisted and winning schemes at the New London Architecture (NLA) galleries, The Building Centre WC1 will run until Saturday 26 February 2011.

Peter Murray, chairman of NLA said: “In the face of relaxation of planning controls under the new Localism Bill it is essential that architects promote their skills to homeowners to ensure the quality of new building. This exhibition illustrates the benefits of good design.’
