Victoria Park House in Hackney, London by Material Works Architecture

Friday, July 24th, 2020

Article source: Material Works Architecture

Having moved from a substantial loft apartment to a Victorian terrace, the clients were keen to recapture the open sense of space and light their former home had offered. The brief called for an open space that could be adapted for either entertaining, dining or relaxing simply by moving loose furniture. To achieve this, the kitchen was moved back into the centre of the house, leaving the new room free of fixed joinery except for a single run of low level solid oak units that provide storage and a shelf for artworks. The inclusion of full height sliding glass doors and a minimally framed roof-light provide an abundance of natural day-light and visual connections to the rear garden. The structural steel was left exposed to provide a distinct design motif as well as maximising the ceiling heights and sense of space.

This refurbishment and extension project in Hackney, adds a new kitchen, WC and sunken bath to an existing ground floor apartment. The project references early 20th century concrete installations and Japanese theories on aesthetics and materiality. The client requested a bath specifically designed for relaxation and warming which follows the principles of ritual bathing. The kitchen includes a bespoke copper worktop and backsplash, designed to develop a patina over time.

A rear glass box extension allows light into, and views out of, a Victorian end of terrace house in Hackney. The rear glass box extension allows light to the interior of the property and provides views over the adjacent park from the ground floor living spaces. Shaded from the sun by the orientation of the existing house, this new frameless glazed element takes advantage of the unique view from this end of terrace property.

Colville Estate, Hackney London NL architects with WHAT architecture Invited competition, 2012 Columnar Towersis a proposal for a residential development of 199 apartments in Hackney,London. The project is part of a master plan by Karakusevic Carson Architects for the regeneration of the Colville Estate.

The high residential density demands of the project brief will inevitably result in large massing. Our proposal attempts to mitigate the effects of this by breaking each tower into a ‘bundle’ of seven smaller towers, or ‘columns’. Each mini-tower is formed by simple ‘stacks’ of single apartments.
