Shooters Hill

The Georgian ‘tea caddy’ houses on Shooters Hill Road, Blackheath, London have their best rooms on the raised ground-floor level, with the kitchen, downstairs in the basement, deprived of light and views out. Charles Barclay Architects were commissioned to design a side extension in place of the existing garage. This provides a kitchen/dining room on the same level as the main reception rooms, with a sunken garage below and a basement playroom to the rear.

The kitchen is lit by a 5m-long rooflight, and glass floor panels bring additional light down to the playroom. From the front, all this extra accommodation appears to be a simple side garage, matching the other garages and coach houses nestled between these historic houses.


Architect: Charles Barclay Architects
