London, the capital of England and the United Kingdom, is a 21st-century city with history stretching back to Roman times. At its centre stand the imposing Houses of Parliament, the iconic ‘Big Ben’ clock tower and Westminster Abbey, site of British monarch coronations. Across the Thames River, the London Eye observation wheel provides panoramic views of the South Bank cultural complex, and the entire city.

Contemporary Extension – London

This 1930’s suburban London house has been brought fully up to date with a dramatic ground floor extension and master-bedroom suite on the top floor. It was a big challenge to achieve an open-plan ground floor whilst maintaining the necessary fire separation for the stair, but we found the solution with a super-sized glass sliding door.
