By removing the existing redundant roof voids from the upper floors of this three-storey Victorian terraced house, a further sense of height and scale has been achieved.

Roof lights and a shaped window, that follow the line of the ceiling and roof, flood the extended stairwell with natural light, whilst vaulted ceilings give rooms on the second floor additional volume and an extra sense of space.

A generously proportioned window in the new home office overlooks a living roof to the rear of the house and frames the local skyline. Large roof lights to the front of the house pick out east London landmarks.

The exterior of the roof conversion is clad with Red Cedar boards that complement the brickwork of the house by way of colour.
