The homeowners, a retired pair, approached Studio Ben Allen to reconsider the piecemeal rear façade of their close of terrace Victorian home in north London and to offer a new kitchen area and two new bogs – a single to be on the ground flooring and accessible. The architects had been eager to take into account how the extension could exhibit exemplarily use of pigmented patterned concrete as both equally construction and architectural complete. Eco-friendly patterned columns and beams generate a framework for the salmon color structural wall panels of the initially-flooring bathroom. Internally the use of pigmented concrete proceeds – with stairs, counters, sink, floors, benches, bathtub and washbasin all cast in pigmented concrete. A next topic is the use of louvered vaulted ceilings with provide diffuse gentle down into both equally the kitchen area and toilet. A double peak room connects the new ground flooring areas with a new mezzanine on the very first flooring which in turn is related to the major stair. This void allows mild to penetrate deep into the dwelling while also generating visual and aural connections through the property.
The creativeness! The curves! The colors!
