Cousins & Cousins wins planning for Hackney extension

  • 1 Comment

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS + PROJECT DATA] Cousins & Cousins has won planning permission for a timber-framed house extension in Hackney, East London

The extension to the three-storey Victorian house, which features a glazed double-height void over the family living area, will be constructed from a glulam timber structure with cross-laminated wall panels.

The 223m² project also includes the refurbishment of the existing house adding a new bedroom, library, and open plan living space.

Hackney Council said the designed was ‘a good example of contemporary design incorporated into a traditional building form’.

The scheme is set to start on site in early 2015.
