The Stepped House, Harringay Ladder
The project remodels and extends an existing ground floor flat within a Victorian terrace. The qualities of the existing property are enhanced by locating a new open plan living and kitchen space in the grand front rooms. The rear of the property is extended and reshaped to create two new bedrooms and a dining space which all open on to the garden — the varying scales of spaces combined with the rich yet economical selection of materials to create a variety of spaces which uniquely serve their different functions.
'We approached Whittaker Parsons with a very clear vision of how we wanted to renovate and extend our ground floor period flat. Camilla and Matthew took the time to get to know us, and understand what we wanted to get out of life at home. By combining their observations with their expertise and creativity, they were able to present us with a plan that challenged our preconceptions, yet was absolutely perfect for us. That really set the tone for their service - they have surpassed our expectations at every stage of our project since. And to top it off, they are lovely people who are an absolute joy to work with!'
