11 Bute Gardens, Hammersmith, London


Grade 2 listed house

The design of a modest but modern extension to complement a Grade II Listed Georgian house in Hammersmith will now serve a small group of retiring sisters of the Sacred Heart community giving them a home and private space. The new rooms wrap around the ground floor seamlessly linking the kitchen and living room to a set of new spaces for eating and praying together with all the comforts of underfloor heating, level access and a new kitchen. By proposing an exposed timber structure and full height glass windows and doors, we have maximised the internal volume of the space which was limited by the existing building floor to ceiling heights on a northern aspect overshadowed by the school at the rear.
