Brixton, Lambeth SW4
At the beginning, this was as basic a brief as they come: To flip the existing staircase and create another bedroom on the lower ground floor. However, this was complicated by a very tight deadline as the clients had to move in within a space of 3 weeks.
As the clients comprised of a couple and one of their siblings, the house had to essentially accommodate 2 independent households. What we did was to design the 3 floors into 2 separate spaces with all the provisions for a future loft extension and change of use to 2 apartment dwellings.
Despite this being a very small project, we enjoyed the multiple facets of the brief and challenges it presented.
