The Avenue

The Avenue is a reconfiguration and extension of an interwar house in Highams Park, London.

The designs work on the principle that rooms and spaces need not be defined by walls and doors, but could instead be a series of thresholds, generous niches and varying volumes, which create a holistic approach to the way that modern family life might occupy the home.

At first floor, a more straightforward approach provides two new double bedrooms, using the existing stairs and circulation where possible. A new master suite is provided towards the front of the house, whilst at the rear, a second double bedroom enjoys views over the garden with a large dormer window.
