Removing a poorly laid out 1970s addition, O’Sullivan Skoufoglou Architects have introduced a highly-crafted solution to this north London townhouse.
The owners hoped for a unified space that connected with the garden—and what better way than to use a tried and trusted natural material? From the windows to the walls, O’Sullivan Skoufoglou Architects have dressed the addition in buttery timber, sourced from a family-run workshop who fabricated and pre-assembled the material. But it doesn’t stop there—all of the furniture and storage are made from wood. In the garden, the timber is a warm contrast from the century-old brickwork, and is encased by new ‘London stock’ brick walls, that are designed to age just as the old.
