Wrap House, Chiswick, London | Alison Brooks Architects

This project is a 100sqm extension to the ground floor of a large detached house providing a variety of new internal spaces that are linked and continuous. The building's skin wraps down to the side of a centrally located fireplace to form an outdoor timber deck. The deck spills out onto the garden and turns into a storage room and barbeque area. Alison Brooks Architects used a series of geometrical shifts to achieve an integrated relationship between the building's structure, skin, and internal spaces. Manipulations of all three elements occured until they stabilished and resolved into one crystallized form.
