The Lambeth Marsh House by Fraher Architects

  • Posted 21 months Ago

In May 2016, Fraher Architects completed a stunning refurbishment of a South London house that had been abandoned for over 10 years. Situated in a Conservation area, the architects had the tricky task of breathing new life into the building while paying respect to its heritage as a home for artisan workers.

"The run down fabric of the existing building required extensive refurbishment with a sensitive approach," said Fraher Architects. "Restoring the panelled fireplaces, wood panelling to walls, architraves and skirting to their original condition celebrates the history of this building."

The addition of a light, airy rear and side extension gives the house a contemporary touch, while a new glass roof extension feeds light into the main part of the building. Modern homeware and minimalist light fittings have also been used throughout the residence to bring it into the present day.
