Zucchi House located in Hampstead in North London included the remodelling of the ground and lower ground levels in order to make the rear garden more accessible.
A double-height glass extension, now elegantly connects the home to the garden. Its chamfered and mitred Portland stone frame funnels light into the interior. The upper ground floor level that now houses the kitchen, has been opened up to flow through into the new extension.
Quote in Grand Designs Magazine from the client:
Was the build challenging?
“Yes, it was far more complex than it looks. We didn’t want beams running across the rooflight so we hid the horizontal supports lower down in the structure. And lots of work went into the junction between the stone, the door, the metal and the planters – that’s a lot of trades in just 1sqm of space.”
Symmetrys were appointed to carry our the structural engineering on this project.
