Occupying its own small oasis behind the lively streets of Peckham, this former Victorian bakery has been granted planning permission to be converted into a home. The design intervention will alter its currently long and narrow volume with the introduction of a new entrance courtyard connecting the outrigger to the original Victorian bakery. The new courtyard brings a celebrated arrival to the site the whilst retaining the view from the entrance along the site and towards the back garden. Echoing the functional aesthetic and heritage of the old bakery, the ground treatment will introduce new paving stones and cobbles around the existing, with the intention to leave a trace of what came before as a tapestry of materials collected over time.
