Our clients asked us to transform a very dilapitated north London house is to a vibrant eclectic space where they could work and live as a famliy. We thought about how to interconnect different spaces in the house, to allow different activities to relate socially. A new double height space provides this connection, allowing conversations between the office, the sitting room and the kitchen. When privacy is required, a series of sliding doors creating the separation that every family space and workspace requires. 


The project uses a palette of materials ranging from exposed steel structure, birch ply joinery and repurposed bricks, harvested from the deconstruction phase.
