A brilliant reinterpretation of a classic Victorian terraced house in the Jesus Hospital Conservation Area. The property has been transformed into a wonderfully light and spacious family home.
Nestled behind Columbia Road in one of East London’s most dynamic districts, this house has been entirely re-thought by Architecture for London - a practice known for their transformative reworking of period properties. On the ground floor there is an expansive, split level living/ dining/ kitchen space with a glass ceiling extension and large sliding glazed doors. The polished concrete floor flows outside and connects to an attractive garden. The kitchen is the beating heart of this home - its bespoke cabinets were designed by the architect and built by a local craftsman, the soft colour palate, the use of tactile materials and high quality kitchen equipment make this a space for the modern home cook.
Upstairs you find the three bedrooms, hallway and bathroom, all of which are double height spaces where the original ceilings have been opened up, creating interestingly proportioned and voluminous spaces. The family bathroom has a glazed ceiling allowing you to gaze into the sky while soaking after a long day.
The house is our idea of perfection - large, light and stylish living space, located in a great part of London.
