Paul Archer shrinks scheme to skip planning

Paul Archer Design has released this model shot of a modern extension to a private house in London's plush St John's Wood.

The £300,000 project, which has started on site, is located on Hamilton Terrace and was reduced in size after planning was rejected in mid-2004.

Construction on to the back of the semi-detached Victorian house proceeded after a 'certificate of lawful development' - which allows sufficiently secluded and small developments to proceed without planning permission - was issued in January.

Extensive glazing will be introduced to exploit views across the property's substantial garden, with the cantilevered roof over the new kitchen being supported by a single central column to minimise interference between the structure and the glass.

The single-storey structure uses the entire width of the house and replaces an original, poorly lit basement kitchen.
