Think of an eclectic setting and many of us tend to conjure images of ‘chaos’ as different styles come together to create an explosion of color and pattern. But this is a largely misinterpreted view of the style that basically allows you to express yourself freely without being rigidly bound by decorating conventions.
Refurbished by Scenario Architecture for a young family of three the interior of the house has been completely rearranged to create a more modern relaxing ambiance where each room flows into the next. It is the that was turned into the new kitchen and dining area with the step-wise arrangement of the living area delineating space without ever creating an obstruction for the flow of natural light.
Designed by DADA & Partners it is the lower level of the expansive house that contains the family room living area dining space kitchen and other formal space while the top floor contains additional bedrooms and bathrooms.
It is a contemporary home that is defined largely by the irregular lot that it sits in and the existing greenery that the homeowners and Tzannes Associates wished to preserve to the best possible extent. The result is a fascinating and exceptional home where the outdoors become a vital part of the interior!
By altering the internal layout the new kitchen and dining area is connected with the small garden outside even as skylights and bespoke window features bring in ample sunlight.
It is the lower level that houses the private spaces which are also blessed with loads of daylight thanks to the design of the stairwell. But it is undoubtedly the innovative rooftop garden that steals the show at this nifty London residence.
While the name of the house might be a bit misleading (at this is definitely not a little home by any stretch of the imagination) it still is a makeover that makes clever use of every inch of square footage on offer.
