An unusual and exotic home
AY Architects for private client
Contract value: Confidential
Beginning as a modest conversion of an over-developed Victorian terraced house, this became an ambitious redevelopment of the entire building. By reflecting the client’s travels and interests, the architect has created an unusual and exotic home.
A series of light airy spaces are linked by a courtyard, staircases and terrace. A spectacular 9m void contains a white-steel and mahogany staircase extending from the basement to the second floor in a series of straight flights, curves and bridges. On the street the former shopfront is discreetly painted grey, with smoked glass concealing the theatricality of the interior.
