Turney Rd

Completed / As Existing

150 Turney Rd is a large semi detached Victorian property within the Dulwich Estate. This is the second property we have worked upon for the client couple, who had previously lived in East Dulwich. They wanted rearrange the ground floor and extend to the rear to accommodate a kitchen diner, a WC and a utility room in addition to the two reception rooms already there. They also wanted to convert the attic to accommodate a master bedroom and en-suite.

Keeping the structural modifications to a minimum, we demolished the existing lean-to conservatory and scullery and are building a large, full width garden room that connects to the new kitchen. The WC and utility room have been positioned deep within the floor plan, as these are the rooms that require least natural light. A glazed slot in the roof separates the new green roof from the existing building and allows light to filter deep into the plan. A new wood burning stove provides a focal point for the room. The attic room exploits the fantastic views over Dulwich sports ground and Belair Park and has a dressing room, storage and a large top lit bathroom.
