South Hampstead House

Dynamic reconfiguration and extension to an Edwardian home

ECA Studio were commissioned to transform and extend a large Edwardian home with poor connections to a loved garden. An existing cramped extension is replaced with an open, contemporary ‘box’ clad in corten-steel-inspired tiles. The new extension enhances the relationship between the kitchen and the beautiful garden that had been so lacking until now.

By completely reconfiguring the layout of the property we created six generous double bedrooms. The incorporation of a suspended, perforated metal staircase allowed natural light to flood deep into the house.

The once-unused narrow garage has been cleverly reimagined into warm traditional living with an inviting open-plan kitchen and dining area. Below the floorboards lies a hidden gem—a captivating underground spiral cellar crafted from engineered limestone concrete, adding a touch of mystery and sophistication.
