The project involved the conversion of an existing residential dwelling, into a live-work space, occupied by an industrial designer, graphic designer and their family.
The typical domestic configuration of private and communal volumes was retained, with the introduction of a more generous series of circulation routes introduced between them, the aim being to create what felt like a single common area that would work as both a domestic and work environment.
The building’s original, and in places inconsistent, architectural features were largely retained and refurbished. However, in the case of any heavily altered volumes and details, simplified interpretations of both were introduced as replacements. These were intended as both signifiers of the works and as a means to knit previously unrelated spaces together with a series of consistent elements.
Constructed between March 2019 and July 2019.
