Rear and Side Extension, Thurleigh Road, SW12 8HD

Located between Wandsworth and Clapham, this Edwardian building was altered to suit the standards and expectations of 21st century living.

The building was extended to the rear and to the side, involving generous use of external glazing to maximise the intake of natural daylight. The development preserved the original character of the building while accommodating a contemporary well-lit configuration suited for the modern home.

Working with Quartet Architecture, Croft designed structural steelwork to make it possible to have a cantilevered arrangement for the extension roof. This allowed for uninterrupted glazing to extend across the full width of the extension then return around the side. Croft also ensured that the steelwork and the new foundations were adequate to suit the architect’s open plan arrangement.

Thanks to the south-east facing orientation, Croft’s revised structure has allowed the occupants to enjoy a plentiful dose natural daylight from the rising morning sun.
