Architecture and interiors firm Finkernagel Ross has recently completed a contemporary rear extension to a traditional Victorian home, located in West London, England.

The rear extension, which connects the new interior spaces to the garden, has floor-to-ceiling windows and a large sliding glass door.

Inside the new extension is a kitchen, living room, and dining area, however one of the key design elements is a long skylight that fills the interior with natural light.

The skylight travels along one side of the open plan room, from the living room to the dining area, and provides a glimpse of the rear wall of the original house.
