The envelope of a wrap-around two-storey extension has been designed in collaboration with photographer Simon Head. Glazing apart, the building is entirely clad in timber strip to roofs and walls.


The exterior provides a new entrance and connections back into the existing house on two levels to create wheelchair accessible ground floor living and bedroom spaces, a first floor artist’s studio and a top floor one-bed flat.


The design evolved in collaboration with Simon Head – a photographer, filmmaker and typographer  - and, like Simon’s work in relief on blocks of slate or stone, was conceived as carved from a single block, in this case of Douglas Fir. The extension is glimpsed as a wooden house-in-the-trees from the Stroud Green Parkland walk.
