Posted by the editors on Thursday, 26 July 2012

Residential Architecture: The Jewel Box House by Fraher Architects: “..London-based Fraher Architects have completed a house extension in Islington that is wrapped in larch batons and has a flower-covered roof..Adjoining the rear of the listed house, the timber-clad extension contains a study and a dining room with an oversized glass door to the garden..Benches and fences lining this garden terrace are made of the same timber..A serpent-like lamp illuminates the terrace at night, while matching orange lamps light up the new dining room beneath a rectangular skylight..The roof over the dining room is split into two halves, which pitch in different directions and enable rainwater collection..”  Ample glazing, roof garden, wood cladding, wood lamella, courtyard..
