The Stacked Brick Extension

The Stacked Brick Extension is a ground floor wrap around extension to a small Victorian terraced house in Stoke Newington. The original house had an odd layout, with the main bathroom on the ground floor at the back of the kitchen and no bathroom on the first floor. The ceiling height was very low on the ground floor creating a very unwelcoming kitchen and there was no connection with the garden. The extension creates a sociable open plan kitchen diner with sliding doors opening onto a new patio. We lowered the floor to create better ceiling height in the kitchen and opened up the pitched roof internally to create even more volume and define the dining space. The extension is constructed from a pale yellow brick to complement the traditional yellow stock brick of the original house, but lend a more contemporary feel. The bricks are stack bonded to create a geometric pattern. The garden and patio are all constructed form the same brickwork which helps the spaces flow together and gives a greater sense of space and continuity in the small garden. Internally a simple palette of materials includes exposed Ash rafters, Birch face plywood to form a dining room bench, dark green kitchen cabinets and grey floor tiles.
