UK architectural  firm Emil Eve has completely transformed a terraced house in Newington Green, East London. The addition of bold geometric rear and roof extensions, both clad in rich terracotta tiles, has given the home a modern and stylish look.

The young family living in the house wanted more space for entertaining and relaxing, as well as a layout that could comfortably accommodate guests for extended visits.

The ground floor extension offers expansive views of the garden through a contemporary bay window, complete with a deep window seat to capture sunlight all day long.

Inside, the bright new kitchen boasts custom units in European oak and plenty of built-in storage. A generous rooflight with oversized timber louvres floods the space with natural light.

The two separate reception rooms have been combined into one large living area that opens up to the kitchen, creating a seamless flow throughout the ground floor.

Upstairs, the roof extension has added a full additional floor, housing a new main bedroom with a secluded roof terrace and ensuite. Built-in planters bring greenery right up to the tall windows, adding a touch of nature indoors.

Sustainable features like an air source heat pump, intelligent heating system, and improved insulation make this home as eco-friendly as it is beautiful.
