Crouch End Breakout Extension

Crouch End Breakout Extension

This small one bedroomed flat, within the Crouch End Conservation Area, became too small on the arrival of the owners’ first child.

The small rear/side garden, with its skewed boundary fences, offered the only room for expansion.

Two extensions break out from the existing bedroom, responding to, and limited by, the angles of the fences.

In a potentially darker corner the roof breaks out, by being prized open, and folded back, allowing the daylight in.
