North London Mews
This project exemplifies the rather classic notion and order of the
Piano Nobile – perhaps not in the spectacular Palladian manner, but
certainly benefiting from the primary living space being arranged on the
first floor. This arrangement is founded on a carefully planned ground
floor, offering accommodation form of three bedrooms, a family bathroom
and a small courtyard garden.
The new curving stair snakes its way from ground to third floor and
forms a particularly sculptural element in the open-plan landscape of
the first-floor living room. The primary living space hosts living, dining and kitchen facilities in an
open-plan arrangement under a dramatic vaulted ceiling.
The second floor is the master bedroom suite with distinct bathing,
sleeping and dressing zones and a rather unique Juliet balcony window
overlooking the double-height volume of the living/dining space below.
