This project is located in St John’s Wood Conservation Area in North London within a Grade II listed Victorian four-storey 250 square metre building. The brief was to create a speculative dwelling that would be generous and sophisticated in feel and thereby suited to London’s international property market.
A striking suspended staircase unifies the existing refurbished rooms of the house with the new spaces. It is made of 27 of stainless 10mm steel diameter rods that create a permeable circulation route ensuring the overall effect is both voluminous and well lit. The staircase in this project is integral to the general feel and character of the remodelling of the building and gives it a distinct identity. To offer additional space, we have designed a new basement extension.
