05 Aug Bright Modern Extension and Garden Room of Victorian Family Home in London
There comes a time when every aging home needs a makeover and that is just what Ravensbourne Avenue House in Bromley, South East London was given with a new rear extension and garden room that bring modernity to the residence. Revamped and given a new lease of life by Minifie Architects, it is new open plan kitchen and dining area that become the heart of the new home. The classic Victorian aesthetics of the original home were left unaltered while the extension holds a spacious and light filled social zone. With exposed brick walls and dashing blue cabinets, there is plenty to grab your attention in here. A series of glass walls with dark frames usher in natural light with the garden room also embracing the same aesthetics.
A pitched roof with angled segments creates a clever visual play as the extension combines contemporary with the classic in a seamless fashion.

A skylight, beautiful recessed lights and a chandelier above the dining space complete the renovated section of this British home that is visually captivating. [Photography: Will Scott]
