eaton terrace, london
The client for Eaton Terrace runs monthly dinner parties from his home in Southwest London, and our brief was therefore not only to design a small extension to provide more living space for him and his family, but to also reconfigure the existing house to better accommodate guests.
The key move was to shift the kitchen to the first floor alongside the dining room, and reintroduce partitions at ground floor level to create an office and snug. To the rear of the house, we have designed an infill extension with a huge rooflight to form a new day room for the family. Bedrooms, the master bathroom and a second study are found on the second floor, with the basement re-designated as the son's quarters. An original extension off the main stair contains a guest WC and second bathroom at half landings.
Both the kitchen and inbuilt furnishings have been carefully designed using standard products, with considered detail nuances helping to provide a bespoke and individual aesthetic. A new underfloor heating installation requires the removal of the existing floorboards, which in turn are being inventively re-used in the new furnishings and a bespoke door lining to the meeting room.
