Artist's House, Brixton
The Victorian terraced house in Brixton had been the family’s home for 12 years. Rather than move from a well-loved house and neighbourhood as their children grew, the clients asked us to create a spacious, warm, energy efficient home.
Downstairs, spaces have been opened up – bringing in light and reconnecting the house to the garden. Upstairs, remodelled bedrooms, bathroom and shower room – and a new loft conversion – are carefully planned to meet the demands of family life.
The renovations have an undeniably contemporary feel – composed of steel, concrete, smoked oak flooring, and rough plaster walls – but old and new are finely balanced so that the house’s original character is not lost.
