Vertical Strips Of Wood Are A Theme That Continues From The Exterior To The Interior Of This House Addition

British firm FAB Architects have renovated and extended a terraced house in Croydon, England, that includes playful forms and wood accents.

The extension was inspired by the client’s son who loves trains, and features tongue-and-groove larch cladding.

The wood detailing continues through to the interior of the new addition, where a dining area has a sliding glass door that provides views of the back garden. There are also built-in banquettes that wrap around the corner of the space, while round skylights add a touch of natural light.
