A second commission for a family moving to an early Victorian townhouse in a Conservation Area

The London stock brickwork terrace is in Tufnell Park Conservation Area, and this house had the unusual feature of a party wall buttress at the back. The scheme expanded the lower ground floor by building over the side yard, creating a new kitchen/ family room, and opening up the living rooms of the house to the garden. This was achieved in the place-making presence of a venerable umbrella apple tree which gives shade to the garden terrace and is now integrated into the new intimate threshold between inside and outside.

The long internal side wall made in reclaimed stock bricks, top lit by a generous rooflight, is continuous in colour and texture with the external walls of this and neighbouring houses. A full width sliding glazed screen, framed in oak matches the new hardwood floor of the back room. With these simple but clearly expressed means we have made a strong and seamless connection between old and new, and created a relaxed setting for contemporary family life.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
