SUMMER HOUSE, St John's Wood, London

The summer house for the rear garden of the Victorian House in St John's Wood is built on the location of an existing shed. Rising to 3.5m high the profile of the roof follows the profile of the neighbouring warehouse to create a double-height space inside allowing ample natural light to flood in.


The materials used are sympathetic to the existing structures and according to the Conservation Area guidelines. A timber patio extends out to form an outdoor sitting area for the summer months.


The small studio space is a guest bedroom that doubles as a home office for the growing family.
