17th April 2018

Hunting for a home in London’s competitive property market, Andrew Overin and Chris Warner decided to take a chance on a dated London terrace with bags of potential. A kitchen extension and the addition of a second storey transformed the property into the modern, open-plan house the couple had been searching for.

The loft was converted into a bedroom and ensuite with a long wetroom. Copious amounts of light filter into the top storey through floor-to-ceiling bifolds on one side and rooflights opposite.

“I wanted to replicate the same look as the doors in the kitchen. The scheme has worked out perfectly; I love how the evening sun pours into the bedroom,” says Andrew. He chose to keep wooden sash windows throughout the rest of the property to achieve a uniform finish.
