Lady Somerset Road, Kentish Town
As in many Victorian conversions, the bathroom was located on the rear façade of the back wing, blocking views of the garden from the kitchen. Relocating the bathroom would have compromised other rooms, and restrictions on the freehold prohibited building an extension. Through the reorganisation of window openings and careful treatment of partitions, views to the garden were opened up and the kitchen was made to feel significantly more spacious. What had once been a room, which guests would have been discouraged from entering, became the social hub of the flat.
