Gladsmuir House, Islington
The project has been long listed by ‘Don’t move improve 2023’
Set over 8 part floors, the house was ample but divided for family life, the client’s brief for
Gladsmuir House demanded a timeless, playful, flexible proposal.
A Douglas fir framed and clad garden room provides a living space to the rear of the property
(manufactured and installed by K&D Joinery), uniting the kitchen and dining. The modest extension
expands into the garden, harnessing a deceptively large space. The stepped angled form responds
to the extents of the existing side extension and neighbours. A long southwest aspect is captured
by the angled plan. The interior is stained in white oil; the exterior in vibrant blue contrasting
with the brick.
A utility and pantry lie to the interior, with a playroom converted at the front — a secret
passageway running between. The attics were remodelled as a master suite, with a raised
bath to capture views over London.
