Private Residential Refurbishment The Avenue, London, UK Project 2010
This semi-detached Victorian house is not only the client's home but also their long-term investment. The initial brief for the project was to brighten the gloomy interior and create a cohesive living space throughout the house. The proposed solution was to introduce a series of roof lights and cut back the floors to allow as much natural light as possible into the darkest areas of the house. The main focus was on high-traffic areas, such as the kitchen, to transform the traditional, compartmentalized layout into a semi-open plan design that offered greater flexibility of use. This approach would have a positive impact on the family's everyday life by creating private areas while simultaneously facilitating interaction within the space.
