BEECHCROFT ROADJUL 2016Tooting Bec, London
A large door for a small flat - This extension of a victorian terraced house in Tooting was designed and built to contrast delightfully with its city context. The extension is formed by a 3 metre high door within a door which is traditionally called a wicket gate. Our client Sophy grew up in Cambridge so we brought a miniature college gate to Tooting and painted it white to illuminate her back garden.
The door can swing open to expose the kitchen to the garden for parties, good weather and special occasions. When closed a white washed panelled wall is formed through which the small door allows day to day access and a view east.
