Flodden Road Lambeth, London
SAM Architects were appointed to remodel this 1960’s mid-terrace house in South London. The task was to create more space within the relatively tight footprint of the building, improve the building fabric. This was achieved through a number of small interventions which improve the efficiency of the each space and provide more efficient storage solutions throughout the building such as bringing the front door inline with the external wall and open out the space behind, and providing access to previously inaccessible space under the stair.
This created the opportunity to open out the existing garage, and create a new open-plan kitchen and large entrance area. This multi-functional space is fitted throughout with colourful bespoke joinery consisting of a number of pieces designed to serve a dual purpose such as a bench that doubles up as shoe storage. More light is then drawn into the space through the introduction of a new roof light above the kitchen and full height sliding doors to the rear, further enhancing the feeling of space throughout the ground floor.
