The Naked House is a project designed by Whittaker Parsons. The sustainable re-birth of a 3-bedroom Victorian London terrace for a young family, completed in 2020, just in time for the UK lockdown. Whittaker Parsons has created a beautiful, functional space that the clients love, offering them sanctuary in the middle of the Medway Conservation Area in East London.

The property was extended, thermally upgraded and remodelled using innovative, sustainable materials, creating a sense of physical, mental and social well-being. The side return extension blurs the threshold between interior and exterior space and the new mansard roof extension provides a bamboo and cork-lined bedroom boasting views across the docklands.

 

Our clients first approached us in 2018 to review a couple of properties that they were considering moving to – further out of London with more space and privacy. They loved the area they lived in (Mile End, East London) but could not see how their existing home would accommodate their needs. This conversation was a spark that inspired and guided our design to remodel their existing house. As a result, the project grew from the inside out.
