Stairway House

Location:  Islington, London 

Status:    Completed, 2021

A basement, side rear extension and extension refurbishment of a traditional Victorian terraced house within a Conservation Area in Islington, London. The  existing four storey house, with a half-basement, is set on split levels. The front ground floor is set at a considerably higher level compared to the rear. Our design proposal was to embrace the difference in levels, while opening up the internal space.

We designed a completely open space that steps down from the front to the rear. The ground floor layout is split into three levels, to achieve a soft change in levels along the length of the house. The dining area is placed in the middle of the layout, and at mid-height. The result is an open and complex space with views to the garden and dynamic, exciting changes of viewpoints.
