Designed in Hackney: it’s week four in our celebration of design from the London borough of Hackney and today’s featured project is a modest glass extension to a house in Dalston by Shoreditch-based architects Platform 5.

Located at the back of the house, a glass roof and wall project out from the side of a renovated kitchen and bridge across to a brick garden wall.

On sunny days the glass wall can pivot open, connecting the kitchen and small dining area to a terrace with the same concrete floor.

A glass structure also extends through the existing brick walls on the other side of the kitchen, creating an oriel window that houses a chunky wooden daybed.

The project was completed at the end of 2007 and was named best new extension in London at New London Architecture’s Don’t Move, Improve! awards in 2009.
