This North London refurbishment provides a place of retreat in a busy urban environment. The period property has been transformed inside and out to include a new charred timber bedroom extension along with a sympathetic refurbishment of the original dwelling. The internal spaces flow seamlessly to the terrace at the rear, effectively doubling the footprint of the apartment through the creation of an ‘outdoor living room’. Long grasses, climbing plants and slatted screens are positioned to provide a sense of enclosure and allow nature to take over this part of the city.
