Creation of a modern rear extension to terraced Victorian house, opening up entire ground floor.
Modern extension to Victorian terraced house in London
The rear extension to this terraced Victorian house in Wimbledon, south-west London, was interesting in so far as the very modern design required knocking through the entire ground floor, opening up the space to create an inside-outside living area which needed to be supported by a structural steel frame.
The architect incorporated a considerable glazed area for natural daylight, which posed structural challenges in so far as the steel framework had to remain sympathetic to the design, avoiding visible beams and supports; a requirement which we rose to in order to provide the best structural solution.
