Working with the structure of a London Victorian house developed on three levels with a narrow and stretched section, the project started with the intention of generating one large space, placing the services within a side strip of the house and leaving space for the main living and kitchen areas, revisiting the typical multi-level English house scheme.
The two main rooms on the ground floor are therefore developed in sequence, separated only by a large gap. At the ends of the house, overlooking the living room and kitchen, two large windows illuminate the open space.
On one side we find the classic English bow window, which brings light into the living room while framing the succession of Victorian facades in front. On the other, a windowed area the same size as the façade opens up the kitchen to the outside garden, a green extension of the ground floor.
The first floor is dedicated to the sleeping area, where three bedrooms and two bathrooms are articulated in a space of the same narrow and elongated proportion as the lower floor.
The house has a calm, cool atmosphere thanks to the use of light maple wood which covers all the floors and provides the structure for all the wardrobes and bookcases. The only exception are the bathrooms, which are colourful and bold.
