Ainsworth Road

The basement extension was conceived as a house for a photographer. It was part of a subdivision of a grand Victorian property in the heart of Hackney. The new two-bedroom home takes advantage of the site’s East-West orientation thus creating generous terraces to the front and rear of the property. The proposal allows the client to downsize comfortably hence remaining in the borough.

Avenue Road

Variant Office were invited to develop a proposal for a side space in Bromley. The proposal envisioned a new end of terrace unit with flats. The scheme would contain a two and a three-bed unit, with a garage replacement two-bed unit.

The main block picks up on the proportions and elements of the existing terrace whilst responding to its prominent corner location. The garage replacement is appropriately subservient in scale thus not dominating the existing terrace on Chesham road.
