When you have the rare luxury of a creative and open minded client, bold design possibilities become tangible.
A fabulous loft conversion by @mitchellandcorti a London based architecture studio. This loft and roof extension could have been just another run-of-the-mill project, but they asked themselves: why not push for something more playful?
An upside down flat, with an open plan loft living/kitchen space and bedrooms below is perhaps a crowd dividing layout, but one their clients were willing to embrace.
The site is characterised by an unusual quadrilateral shape, a limitation on paper, but Mitchell + Corti Architects chose to see it as a unique feature worth celebrating.
This brought about a proposal that includes irregular shaped skylights that conform to site-specific angles, and an equally unusual staircase plan.
Bold colours complement the spaces, alongside dual aspect views and the ever-changing play of light and shadows brought about by the multiple skylights piercing the roof.
Simple yet unusual, practical yet unconventional, the home almost doubled in size and character.
M+C were extremely fortunate to find a client willing to embrace ideas beyond the ordinary. An end of terrace, first floor flat, Victorian loft conversion could not look more spacious or site-specific.
