• How We Approached Our Fulham Extension

    Working as architects in Fulham, Shape Architecture undertakes many extension and remodelling
    projects for a variety of flats. This project concerns works to a lower ground floor flat and issues
    around light and views are paramount. Our private residential work revolves around such issues and
    it was this experience that led our client to appoint Shape Architecture.



    Fulham Extension

    The flat as presently configured has a quite small living dining space with kitchenette and then a
    series of poorly lit rooms and finally little or no connection with the garden. The proposal totally
    changes that. A rear and side extension which incorporates a courtyard, floods an open and
    contemporary interior and links outside and inside spaces. A large kitchen and dining space benefits
    from glazed doors onto the garden and a lower terrace, large format rooflights and at its rear wrap
    around glazing onto a small courtyard. Bedrooms and bathrooms and associated storage is made
    far more efficient and extensive.

    Flood Risk Measures

    Much effort has been made to address issues relating to potential flood risks and this formed a key
    part of the planning permission. A green sedum roof over the extension serves to absorb a large
    percentage of rainwater that falls upon it and forms a further area of greening to the garden. Gravel
    and permeable paving are also integrated into the landscape design. As is a rainwater butt.
