Horse Door House

We are just finished on site with this ground floor extension in Leyton – our first to have used a ‘horse door’ (a door which can either open top or bottom). The project is designed around a pre-existing brick wall built by the client’s father, which we extended into the house to establish a strong visual connection between inside and outside. The bright yellow horse door provides access to the garden. The large picture window is framed by a galvanised structural frame which also forms a structural gutter to provide a cantilevered canopy over the door.
