back in 2009 michitecture shared the platform 5’s winning project hackney house extension from “don’t move improve” competition, an NLA competition in its second year (2010) to find the capital’s best designed and most innovative home extensions and small office conversions. in 2010, the overall winner have awarded to hoxton house by david mikhail architects.

from the architect:

” An extension of only one metre in depth has helped transform this house. A multitude of small rooms and a head height of only 2m in the semi underground basement kitchen made it feel very pokey. By lowering both the garden and the basement, together with stripping back the ground floor from the rear and then adding the glass box on the rear, our clients can now enjoy the garden from either the kitchen dining room or whilst relaxing in the sofa area above.”
