CROUCH END , N8
A full-width family room extension replacing two disconnected extensions that were partially retained. The infill roof takes on a stealth-like form hiding behind brickwork with large flush glazed openings. It is a folded roof, rubber on the outside and plywood on the inside, with asymmetrical rooflights. 150 fibre optic lights liven up the underside at night.
The room, which opens fully onto the garden, has a kitchen at one end, family dining and homework table in the middle, and a sitting area at the other end.
