Fulham extension and refurbishment
Shape Architecture continues to transform properties throughout Fulham. These range from terraced houses to apartments, and all are characterised by light filled contemporary spaces with a fully integrated connection between the interior and garden beyond. Here at Knivet Road our brief was to open up the interior to create a contemporary light filled home. The resultant design achieves this through a series of interventions. The first and quite simple design intervention was the change of the stair. The building is on distinctly different levels. We changed the stair to have open risers so that immediately on entry one can glimpse the space and garden beyond. A simple change with a big impact. Once past the stairs the sense of simple elegance filled with natural light giving onto the garden is developed at ground floor level. At the same time useful spaces such as a utility room are integrated into the design.
Our Client Writes:
“Shape designed and project managed an extension to our kitchen/diner and the renovation of the rest of our terraced house in Fulham. Jason Wren of Shape expertly guided us through planning and design stages and ran a tender to select an excellent building contractor. As with any building project on an old building, problems and opportunities arose in the course of the work. Jason was able to provide workable and realistic solutions to the problems and helped us find creative options to take advantage of opportunities as they arose. Jason and Shape took a pragmatic approach to the project that enabled us to feel we had designed our ideal house with his professional help. We always felt confident in the professionalism of his advice and experience. We are glad we appointed an architect, and we felt their services were an excellent investment. The result is a delightful home that we already enjoy living in.”
