Rugged strips of Welsh slate complete the rear extension to this remodeled Victorian town house for a fashion stylist, a contemporary art curator and their two young sons. The new dining and kitchen areas are lowered, increasing ceiling heights, and bringing them level with the garden.
As a foil to the calm and light interior, the thick slate ribs create a dark, natural backdrop to the garden foliage.
The carefully modulated kitchen balances the characterful, older parts of the house with the pared back formality of the rear extension. Aged elements, such as vintage door furniture and reclaimed French Oak flooring throughout, extend this nuanced dialogue.
