Emil Eve Architects

Aden Grove

A terraced home in Newington Green, East London is transformed with the addition of bold geometric rear and roof extensions, conceived as a pair and clad in rich terracotta tiles.

Home to a young family, the brief included creating more space for entertaining and relaxing, and reconfiguring the layout to comfortably accommodate guests for extended visits.

The ground floor extension looks on to the garden, with a contemporary interpretation of a traditional bay window offering expansive views. A deep window seat captures sunlight throughout the day, and full-height sliding windows bring the outside in.

The bright new kitchen features custom units in European oak and ample built in storage. A generous rooflight with oversized timber louvres pulls in natural light.

The house’s two separate reception rooms have been joined into one large living space which is open to the kitchen – connecting the whole ground floor and creating views through the house.

Upstairs, the roof extension adds a full additional floor, creating a new main bedroom with a secluded roof terrace, and an ensuite. Built in planters bring greenery right up to the tall windows.

Alongside terracotta, the warm interior scheme includes whites, greens and yellow ochres – a calm backdrop to display the owner’s collections of art and objects.

Sustainable features include the installation of an air source heat pump, an intelligent heating system, and improved insulation throughout the house.
