Mayow Road House

Surman Weston Ltd as Architects

Surman Weston have completed the restoration and extension of a 330sqm Victorian house in the London suburb of Sydenham.

As well a rear extension, the project reconfigures the circulation, sensitively introducing a new staircase and enfilade doors between rooms to transform the formerly cellular layout into a free flowing, more sociable house.

The project sort to subtly delineate the old from the new, blurring the boundaries between the existing house and what was introduced. The new staircase, connecting the upper and lower ground floors to the basement, references the scale and rhythm of the retained Victorian staircase to the upper floors. Several bespoke element were designed and made especially for the project including chandelier light fittings – an abstraction of a traditional chandelier – to hang from the original ceiling roses of the reception rooms.
