Argyll were appointed for the construction of this rear extension and refurbishment to a Victorian terraced house in South London. Bureau de change imagined the unconventional arrangement of interlocking geometric glass volumes which reveal a sequence of compelling interior spaces.

The detailing of this structure features a technically complex steel-frame construction reminiscent of the museum case, combining fragility with solidity in a manner that represents an antidote to the frameless glass extensions of the past decade.

A bespoke terrazzo handrail forms the spine of the journey, linking spaces throughout the house which unfold in a sequence of visually stimulating rooms where texture, graphics, colour and finish have been selected for their theatre and tactility.
