Project DescriptionFROM THE ARCHITECTS:
A transformative small-scale intervention of a small terraced house in a conservation area.
The brief was to turn a small, dark bachelor pad of a terrace house into a spacious, beautiful and functional family home, full of light, whilst also connecting the courtyard garden to the new internal structure to maximise the living space.
The design response opened up the middle of the house, moving and rebuilding the staircase to add much needed ceiling height. At the front, the house looks the same, but inside, it’s a spacious, light-filled, beautifully designed home. The courtyard garden and kitchen are connected with a beautiful grey limestone from just outside Barcelona, with warmth added via the oak beams, kitchen work surface and huge sliding door
