Sophie Nguyen Architects latest project near Brixton
Sophie Nguyen Architects have just finished a new project near Brixton, a beautiful sun trap – the Casa del Sol.
The particular focus of the project was the extension of the lower ground floor of a terraced house into the side alley to create a generous kitchen and dining space, to bring more light in and create a seamless connection to the garden. For this project, the kitchen is introduced as a single standalone element that is placed in the newly annexed side alley. This element maintains its distance from the living space through the glazed gap to the wall of the house – the project is vertical rather than horizontal, bringing clarity to the space as a result. This conversion and the adjoining garden have been conceived to maximise the light that streams into the house.
A sun trap has been created in the middle of Lambeth – the Casa del Sol.
