The sustainable re-birth of a 3-bedroom Victorian London terrace for a young family, completed in 2020, just in time for the UK lockdown.
Whittaker Parsons have created a beautiful, functional space that the clients love, offering them sanctuary in the middle of the Medway Conservation Area in East London.

The property was extended, thermally upgraded and re-modeled using innovative, sustainable materials, creating a sense of physical, mental and social well-being. The side return extension blurs the threshold between interior and exterior space and the new mansard roof extension provides a bamboo and cork lined bedroom boasting views across the docklands.

This project has been longlisted in the sustainable interior category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
