Features such as the space-saving shelves below the stairs and smart kitchen shelving add storage options even as a neutral color scheme anchored in white cuts back on visual fragmentation. Working within existing limitations the architects managed to fashion a cheerful and ergonomic London home that still seems classic at its heart.
The dining room sits at the heart of this floor and offers a glimpse of the mezzanine-level bedroom above. The blue cabinets of the kitchen and the dark black workstation add color to the space even as the custom wall mural in the living area and the bedroom above usher in pattern and panache.
With the glass roof also bringing in ample natural light the new interior is instantly more cheerful modern and relaxing. Acting as a transitional zone between the existing house and the lovely garden this glassy extension also doubles as a cool family hangout.
A two-story vertical bar is the pivot around which the entire house is designed with one side of it containing the living areas and the others holding the service spaces. Two gardens one at the front and the other at the back provide plenty of space for the family members to enjoy the tranquil outdoors with the open living area acting as a bridge between the two. Internal partitions have been kept down to a minimum with even the top level only holding a single master bedroom along with an open sleeping space next to it.
A mezzanine floor at ground level contains the small home library bathroom second bedroom and a home workspace. It is the top level that houses the master bedroom which flows elegantly into the small and cozy balcony.
Reinvigorating classic Victorian terrace homes and extending the living space into the garden or the backyard is increasingly becoming a popular choice among homeowners stretching from Madison to Melbourne.
A series of glass walls and windows connects the interior with the garden and the mountain views beyond even as comfy modern décor and a neutral color scheme create an air of stylish comfort and timeless class.
