Telegraph Hill - House 2
Location: New Cross, Lewisham

The design of the rear extension has been developed as a new rear facing the bay window to pair with the existing Victorian bay window and provides a space to relax, to maximise daylighting and to improve views and access into the garden. The loft extension creates a dormer window in keeping with the character of the terrace whilst using low maintenance contemporary materials such as zinc
The design focuses on low energy design principles to improve thermal comfort and reduce energy costs through good insulation and air-tightness. Summer cooling and visual amenity is provided with a green sedum roof.
