Out of Sight – a stealth roof extension, Islington, London by Spaced Out Architecture Studio
This double-pitched, mansard roof extension adds an extra storey to a small maisonette
The client had two previous planning applications rejected and one dismissed planning appeal. Spaced Out gained planning approval thanks to a design for a roof-top room and terrace that didn’t interfere with the existing terrace features, achieved by setting back the extension’s facade behind the existing front parapet. The extension is covered in reflective stainless steel.
