The scheme provides a new two-storey extension to a Victorian terraced house in West London. The client’s ambition to create a series of new rooms on the upper levels defined a massing approach where the new additions are formed from three interlocking masonry volumes. The existing narrow kitchen extension was dismantled in order to create a new kitchen and dining area at ground level with large skylight. The taller volume accommodates a study with an external terrace at first floor level; and a family bathroom at second floor level. A new zinc clad volume at roof level provides a guestroom with en-suite bathroom.
Private house, Stoke Newington, London
This project establishes a single storey L-shaped volume that infills the narrow passage to the side of the rear outrigger part of the house and integrates the existing ground floor to create a new large kitchen and dining area overlooking the garden. A large skylight brings top light into the centre of the house and a large timber framed sliding door maximises openness to the garden.

Ashley Bickerton – Ornamental Hysteria (Signed)
315 x 240 mm (13 x 10 inches)
Foreword by Hugh Allan
Essays by Paul Theroux, Nicola Trezzi, Roddy Bogawa/Ashley Bickerton
Published by Other Criteria
Bali-based artist Ashley Bickerton (born 1959) rose to prominence in the early 1980s as part of New York’s East Village art scene with his vibrant abstract works critiquing consumer culture and the commodification of the art object. Alongside Jeff Koons, Meyer Vaisman and Peter Halley, Bickerton pioneered what was called the “Neo-Geo” movement with his unconventional paintings devoid of Expressionist brushstrokes. Featuring works that span the duration of Bickerton’s career thus far, from the earlier consumerist works up to the recent tropically-colored mixed-media paintings of exotic, erotic fantasies and nightmares, Ashley Bickerton: Ornamental Hysteria draws from works in Damien Hirst’s Murderme collection. This fully illustrated book offers a thorough survey of the artist’s diverse body of work and includes essays by novelist Paul Theroux and art critic Nicola Trezzi, as well as a conversation between Bickerton and the filmmaker Roddy Bogawa.
