Light filled living spaces connected to the garden looking towards Highgate Wood

The back façade and steeply sloping garden of this late 19thC semi-detached house look south towards Highgate Woods across an archery field. By profession fashion-aware, our clients wanted to extend and open up the ground floor for entertaining and to make the most of its wonderful setting. Subtle co-ordination of the levels of living, kitchen, and dining rooms with those of the new garden room, deck and garden itself and careful consideration of stepping ceilings, daylighting and sightlines frame the best of the trees and views, to create visual theatre and inside-outside ambiguity.

This required delicate negotiations with neighbours and planners, resulting in the extension’s tall volume being articulated and lowered along its western boundary, and its roof planted, giving a new floating plane to the garden.

In contrast to this spatial complexity, the design called for a calm modern minimalism in choice of materials and finishes: a structural steel frame, pale yellow maple flooring, white render and plaster walls, contextual and glass brickwork, with elegant screens of dark metal glazing, gridding green transparency.

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.
