Stephen Lawrence Prize: Modern Side Extension by Coffey Architects

  • Comment

This modern solution to the expansion of a Victorian terraced home is designed to be ‘conservation officer friendly’ and easily replicable across London’s housing stock

PROJECT DATAPLAN • SKETCH • SECTION 

Constructed from brick, glass and aluminium bi-fold sliding doors, the extension aims to find a modern answer to expanding the terraced home using a subtle game of solid and void.

The main concept was a seemingly effortless structural solution that allows the existing volume of the home to slip past a brick pier in a continuation of the house’s existing party wall.

The typological solution can be replicated on adjacent properties, with the pitched roof aiming to maintain good relations between neighbours.
