Passivhaus, Dulwich Estate
Herne Hill, South East London
Carver Road, is a semi detached, 1930’s home located in Herne Hill and the Dulwich Estate. The brief was to create a new ground floor extension to create an open plan kitchen/diner/living area as well as reconfiguring the first floor bathroom and replacement of the existing windows throughout. It was important to the clients that any new extension matched the existing building style.
The new extension creates an open plan space overlooking the garden with a direct connection to a sunken patio area. The second extension, required to replace an existing outbuilding houses a new utility room. A ground floor shower room was also incorporated within the space. A feature roof light draws light into the rear of the open plan space and both extensions have green roofs, improving the view from the first floor bedrooms. The 2 separate rooms were reconfigured at first floor to create a new family bathroom.
