Chiswick

This 6-bedroom Victorian home in West London has been given a contemporary update while preserving its period grandeur.

A sculptural extension clad in patinated brass panels was added to the rear of the house offering more sunlight and space to the ground floor areas whilst creating an exceptional openness to the newly landscaped garden.

A basement excavation was undertaken at the same time, giving the client 240 sqm of new living areas, including a generously-sized hang-out room for the children, a cinema, an office, a utility room and ­a spectacular wine store for the family’s 1500 bottle collection.
