Staines Road, Twickenham
The brief in this semi-detached property in Twickenham was for a ground floor kitchen extension and a loft conversion. This gave an opprotunity to treat the rear elevation as a whole rather than the disjointed effect achieved when lofts are carried out by a separate company with the standard tiled dormers.
The sloping extension was inspired by a practical need to keep the height of the building low on the side with the adjoining property. The glazed walls and roof give the effect of a glass box inserted into the extension, bringing light into the heart of the main living space.

We are so glad we found AWK. We are delighted with the stunning design but even more so with the exemplary service provided by Sam, Tuc and the rest of the team. It would be hard to find a more technically proficient practice and even harder to find a more customer friendly team.
The hand painted kitchen was designed to be in the heart of the house, with an island unit where the family tend to gather for breakfast, coffee mornings with friends and after work meal time conversations.
AWK listens, is client centred, innovative, well organised and an excellent project manager. She pays attention to detail. Most of all she is passionate about her work. A great Architect and example of all that is good in the profession at such a challenging time.
This is one of our favourite - and earliest - projects. With a tight budget and a small kitchen in need of updating, Nick and Rachel wanted to create an interesting kitchen extension to their terraced Victorian property in Twickenham
The first floor was changed from a standard semi detached layout to have two large bedrooms with en-suites, one with a dressing room - a more practical and comfortable arrangement for the cosmopolitan couple.
