Extension in cork
Small Victorian townhouse. Expansion from the sloping roof and cork cladding

London-based studio nimtim transforms the desire of its clients to convert into lofts and expand their Victorian townhouse into a project, through a process of collaboration with the clients themselves, a graphic designer and a photographer

The expansion of the house takes place at the rear of the building. The front part is 1 m higher than the garden floor and, given the desire to connect the garden and the house, internal steps have been added. In this way, the difference in level defined the different uses of space: kitchen and dining room on one side and living room on the other

The expansion is recognizable by its sloping roof shape and the interior and exterior cladding in naturally dyed cork, while the main house is made of brickwork. Thanks to its highly insulating properties, it is not necessary to add other products
