London garden flat completed / by Ian O'Brien

The final touches have been completed in the garden to complement our project to extend and refurbish this garden flat in Hammersmith and Fulham district in London. The extension was designed to create a feeling of being in the garden while indoors and has transformed a dark and oppressive interior into something filled with light but private and restorative. The sloping plan form makes space for the cherry tree and an up-and-over frameless window and roof light capture the full height of the mature birch from the sitting room. Seat height window sills extend to form a timber bench on the outside of the building and the corner windows slide into pockets in the wall to seamlessly connect inside and out for lazy summer days and meals in the garden.
