Denbigh Terrace

Brooks Murray were appointed to convert a house on Denbigh Terrace, a Victorian terrace off Portobello Rd which started out with a typical Victorian plan. The young owner wanted to transform the ordinary to the extraordinary within the constraints of a tight budget and short timescale. The works were a modern yet sympathetic addition to the existing heritage of the property.

By cutting out part of the ground floor to create a dramatic double volume on the lower ground floor, the whole floor is transformed from a gloomy basement into the dramatic piece de resistance of the design. Exposure of structural elements and use of robust, “hard” materials, has given the house a completely contemporary feeling delicately set within the old building.

Denbeigh terrace is famous for its varying multi-coloured house frontages. This street is part of the Pembridge conservation area.
