Originally, this house was featured a typical Edwardian home layout, with areas for servants and utilities including sculleries, coal stores and a working yard accommodated on the ground floor. Quickly, this style and arrangement of the divisions became outdated and the building was remodeled to create more open spaces.

The updating of the house was assigned to the London studio Amin Taha Architects that added a basement level topped with a rugged concrete soffit and a lightwell set into a courtyard garden, and with the main goal was to provide open-plan living spaces featuring a range of tactile materials and finishes.

“Contemporary period materials and details are alluded to where areas would have required reproduction not interpretation by expanding the original palette of cherry wood and travertine with brass and point-tooled concrete,” said the studio.

The outside stayed almost intact just with some details updated to reflect the style of neighboring properties.

Jackson by DelightFULL

To add a midcentury design touch to your ambiances add a bold and unique floor lamp. Jackson standing lamp, by DelightFULL, embodies all these key moments with a powerful stance. The perfect spin from midcentury design classics to a commemoration of pop culture. A unique piece of design which combines luxurious finishes and exposed mechanical elements mixed with rhythm.


The travertine, which formed the original floor, is now used for flooring on each level of the house, including an external courtyard and the garage. The stone is also applied in different finishes on different surfaces throughout the building.

“Varying from quarry tooled to polished, these finishes emphasize and differentiate the journey from the interior to exterior, from the basement to ground and above,” the architects added.

The interior was entirely cleared of structural elements including downstand beams and brick nibs that remained as a legacy of the previous spatial separation.

“Housing bathrooms, wardrobes, folding and sliding doors, some pivot to delineate different room and use permutations when friends and relatives come to stay,” said the architects, “and others remain secret to the family, playfully revealing hidden rooms and passages.”

For example, the living area on the first floor provides an open-plan reception area with a study in one corner that can be transformed into a bedroom by rotating a pivoting wardrobe unit incorporating a pull-down bed.
