23 Ravensbourne Road

Located in the London Borough of Lewisham this L-shaped extension forms a contemporary and complimentary addition to an existing ground floor flat within a Victorian Mansion block.

Extending 6m from the rear of the dwelling, the new space houses an open plan living, kitchen and dining environment.  Opening directly out onto the rear garden, via large sliding doors, the kitchen/living area forms one open plan space which wraps around a glazed courtyard.  This courtyard is set off from the existing building to form a lightwell and tranquil space which provides daylight and ventilation into a newly created bedroom within the existing dwelling.

A brick clad parapet wall projects beyond the south facing facade line to provide solar shading in the summer months and create a covered terrace area that acts as an extension to the living space.
