A modern brick and glass rear addition for a Grade II Listed Town House in Greater London, England.

Paul Archer Design has sent us photos of a rear addition they completed for a Grade II Listed Town House in Greater London, England.

Not only did they design the addition, but they also created a small garden studio that provides a workspace for the musician owner.

A large pivoting glass door connects the rear addition to the patio, garden, and studio, and at the same time allows natural light inside the home.

Inside, the rear addition includes a new kitchen with an island and a small dining area. A partial glass ceiling as well as a floor-to-ceiling window in the kitchen provide ample natural light.
