_ingARCHITECTS were appointed to reimagine a dated four-storey Georgian terraced house in Stockwell, South London.
Sub-divided rooms created dark, cramped spaces which restricted flow and practicality. The brief was to open up the floor-plate on each level, re-focusing attention to the large windows to both front and rear of the property, and modernise the entire interior in a way sympathetic to its heritage.
Full renovation, including complete layout reconfiguration from Lower Ground through to Second Floor.

RECONDITIONING THE EXISTING STAIRCASE, WHICH DATES BACK OVER 150 YEARS WITH NEW HALF-HEIGHT PANELING AND A BESPOKE CARPET RUNNER HAS COMPLETELY TRANSFORMED THE CORE OF THE HOUSE.
SANDING, TREATING AND PAINTING THE ENTIRE STAIRCASE, HANDRAILS AND SPINDLES IN FARROW & BALLS 'OFF BLACK' HAS NOT ONLY CREATED A VISUAL STATEMENT, BUT HAS BROUGHT THE STAIRCASE INTO THE 21ST CENTURY.
STAIR LIGHTS HOUSED IN THE STRINGER HELP TO ILLUMINATE THE STAIRCASE AT NIGHT TIME, CREATING AMBIENT LIGHTING AND SHOWCASES THE STAIRS AS A FOCAL POINT AND DESIGN FEATURE.
