This architecturally designed house, courtesy of Graeme Williamson and award winning Nord Architects, has been extended and developed with a focus on cubism. It was featured on Channel 4’s “Ugly House to Lovely House” post refurbishment due to the quality of the finish. The kitchen and living space extension seamlessly make use of the building’s period features while enhancing the sense of light and space. Offering bespoke units by Square One, Concrete work tops and poured concrete terrazzo floor, complete with underfloor heating, the space has been designed with style and day to day living in mind. The garden, with planting by Katharine Wills, is accessed from the ground floor via bi folding doors and the view from the back of the house is something to behold. Facing East to West with a clever use of glass the outside is blended with the inside and there is a wealth of natural light throughout. Heading up the property there is a main family bathroom complete with floor to ceiling marble, bespoke sinks and taps by Living House. There are fully functioning reclaimed Victorian fire places from Lascos of Shoreditch and beautiful cornicing and coving all fully restored by English Heritage. The main bedroom at the top of the house offers a master suite with walk in wardrobe and en suite bathroom. The works did not solely focus on aesthetics or internal space. There are sash windows with shutters, hand crafted, and fittings courtesy of British Ironmongery, joinery is by Sq1 and electrics and pipework throughout have all been updated Final practical considerations include storage in the loft space.
