Taking its cues from the roofscapes of the east London Victorian Row houses, the structural glass prism which forms the verandah of this Victorian townhouse on Ellesmere road, defeats gravity in propping up the existing brick return of the first floor using only structural glass and 1 disappearing column. Creating a seamless continuity between the interior and the exterior the verandah is supported by a singular boundary wall which contains, drainage, insulation, wiring, electrics, all concealed within the brick boundary wall. The existing building appears to hover, suspended above the glass verandah. The glass prism is angled to counterbalance the volume and maximize the size of the windows.
