Located in Walthamstow Village, this full residential refurbishment and extension turns a dark mid-Victorian terraced house into a bright, modern, family home.
Inexpensive materials have been used and exposed throughout including the concrete, brick and floorboards. Deep paint colours have been applied to give key rooms an identity.
A bespoke glazed skylight was installed over the side-return extension and the introduction of a skylight over the first-floor hallway, provides plenty of natural light to the ground and first floor.
ROAR delivered the project from inception to completion working closely with the client within a limited budget.
Located in Camden, this roof-top extension responds to the constraints of the site to create a contemporary, grade A office space for a private landlord client.
The folding, copper clad structure is shaped by the site’s existing condition. The window openings and dormers align with the existing fenestration below and the faceted corner is designed to capture outstanding views of Regents Park.
ROAR developed the concept and schematic design, obtaining planning permission in January 2018.
Oak Hill House NW3
No. 2 Oak Hill House is a lower-ground floor apartment in Hampstead, London, that has undergone a complete refurbishment for a developer client, Kyte Property.
The plan has been reconfigured to create a second bedroom with ensuite and maximise natural light. Interiors were designed in collaboration with the client, reflecting the heritage of the existing building whilst providing the balance between a one-off apartment and a commercially viable scheme.
ROAR designed and led the project from inception to completion.
Lyonsdown Avenue EN5
ROAR were appointed to extend and refurbish an Edwardian family home in north London. The rear façade has been transformed with the addition of a double storey extension and new cladding to the top floor.
The primary ground floor rear extension is expressed by a deep brick reveal, whilst the secondary side extension sits at a lower level, utilising the site’s topography. Internally, the layout has been rationalised creating a large, split-level open plan space filled with natural light.
A simple palette of materials is proposed; brick, concrete, glass and zinc. Planning permission was obtained in December 2017.
Burrard Road NW6
No. 36 Burrard Road is a Victorian terraced house in West Hampstead, London, that has undergone a complete refurbishment and single storey side and rear extension.
The new addition opens-up the rear of the property and is filled with natural light through the inclusion of a single large rooflight.
ROAR led the project from inception to completion, collaborating with the client on interiors.
Beech Drive N2
ROAR were appointed to carry out the basement fit-out and ground floor refurbishment of a detached period property in Muswell Hill, London.
The basement plan has been rationalised to suit the client brief and improve the physical connection with the ground floor. Habitable rooms are arranged around the existing courtyard and lightwells, maximising natural light and ventilation.
Constraints posed by the existing basement structure led to significant challenges in the delivery of the basement swimming pool. As lead designer, we overcame these challenges through detailed on-site coordination and by working with a range of specialist sub-contractors.
Construction was completed in 2017.
Armitage Road is a detached 1930’s property that has undergone a complete refurbishment, internal alteration, two-storey extension and loft conversion.
To the rear of the property, a large open plan split-level kitchen and living space has been created with 4-metre tall sliding glass doors and windows improving the connection to the garden.
This project was carried out by Shaun O’Brien whilst at Robert Hirschfield Architects.
Contemporary Classic is an Edwardian town house in the Belsize Park Conservation Area that has undergone a partial refurbishment and extension.
The alterations and enlarged kitchen are designed to maximise natural light and improve connections with the garden. Bespoke joinery has been designed to bring warmth into the bathroom and master bedroom.

The Old Parlour BA11
ROAR were appointed to carry out the sensitive restoration and conversion of a redundant milking parlour in Frome, Somerset into a weekend home.
We undertook a number of planning applications to achieve the clients desired scheme, which houses a double height living space with exposed roof trusses and a mezzanine gallery on the first floor.
The selection of high-quality materials including Crittall doors and windows, polished concrete floor, galavanised steel and zinc draws upon the building’s agricultural past.
