The existing house is a period 4 storey terraced house in Hackney East London. The householder approached us to re-model the entire house suitable for contemporary city living. A number of proposals were looked at re-organising the house to various extents. The final proposal shifts the stair to the rear rising through a full height lightwell using screen printed glazing to filter views and daylight in and out. A top floor solarium is added with external terrace for private city sun bathing during the summer months. All of the interior is fully re-modelled and contemporary in style to suit current lifestyles.
