This publication accompanies the competition, now in its sixth year, inviting architects, designers and homeowners to submit well-designed home extension projects across Greater London.
The magazine showcases a range of solutions at a variety of budgets, completed within London’s distinct typologies – from Victorian to Georgian, through to 1950’s stock and more modest industrial buildings.
Excerpt from the introduction
In a city of some 3 million households, the piecemeal adaptation of London’s existing housing stock is necessary to ensure their longevity as homes of the future. While house prices in the capital continue to spiral, expanding and adapting existing living spaces offers homeowners a real alternative to upsizing or moving on.
to achieve this, London’s architects must seek to respond with innovative, high-quality and contextual design – an endeavour supported by nLA’s annual Don’t Move, Improve! awards. now in their sixth year, the competition aims to discover and celebrate London’s best new home extensions, and, in doing so, raise the profile of smaller architectural practices.
The projects detailed in the following pages have been selected by a panel of experts from across the fields of design, architecture and development. their selection highlights a range of solutions at a variety of budgets, providing inspiration for anyone about to embark on their own home improvement.
