Gus Alexander Architects


Ripplevale Grove

After retiring from the Foreign Office, our clients needed to upgrade their Listed house in Islington which had been let out (on-and-off) for the previous twenty years.

We rejigged all the services, and made sense of the bathrooms, fitted new panelling throughout an extension which had been added in 1970, and replaced the windows with something more appropriate to the original house. We replaced the French doors with a partially glazed wide single door that lets in more light, looks better, and was much more secure.

We built a small enclosure to the passage at the side of the semi- detached house to make a utility room thus freeing up valuable space inside.
