The County Grove scheme is a large mid-terrace single family dwelling set within a conservation area in Camberwell, London. The brief called for a modest reworking of the existing rear elevation of the property in conjunction with an extensive Ground Floor interior refurbishment, to provide a contemporary open plan kitchen and dining space, a reading room and study, and family living space towards the front of the property.

By utilising two steel beams and a new contemporary circular column the existing structural walls are removed resulting in a large open plan volume. To create an in keeping appearance for the proposed rear elevational works, the scheme seeks to re-use the brickwork that has been removed from the perimeter of the existing kitchen within the new façade, ad articulated the apertures with contemporary take on crittle-sytle windows and doors.


The materiality of the proposed space Is highly contemporary; the palate blends a range of textured contemporary finishes such as concrete, marble and black painted timber with warmer pops of classic aged oak lining alcoves, and as seating.
