Maynard Road | Widger Architecture

Behind a charred larch exterior, this London loft extension contains a pair of plywood-lined bedrooms that double up as quiet study spaces.

British studio Widger Architecture designed the extension for a first-floor flat in Walthamstow, east London. The brief was to transform the old attic floor into new living spaces, including two generously sized bedrooms.

The sloping roof presented an issue with head-height, which Widger Architecture got around by building a dormer window that spans the entire width of the property. This new addition creates a flat ceiling for the two bedrooms.
