Carlo Carossio


Pardini Hall Architecture as Architects

The building in question is a Grade II Listed terrace house in the neighborhood of Westminster.

The project features the addition of a contemporary glazed extension to a Grade II-listed house to provide additional space without detracting from the original building.

In the daytime, the glass and the stainless steel structure, reflects the surrounding, and appears to almost meld into the garden. In the evening the extension illuminates the original brick work and the glass facade virtually disappears. Our intervention included a stainless steel structure and two walkable skylights to increase the natural light into the building throughout. The extension has been designed as a lightweight structure, which interacts with the existing house with the lightest of touches. The result is an integrated contemporary design to this classical building. The modern makeover of the ground and basement floor, creates brighter spaces with the use of elegant materials and furnitures.

The landscape has been simplified and taylored to the clients families needs. Large indigenous ferns were relocated and donated to Belgrave Square, which opened up the garden revealing a classical fresco once hidden away.
