First look: Edgley's thin house

Shoreditch-based Edgley Design has finished this 4m-wide house in Islington, North London

The 26m-long home is described as an ‘enclosed double-height tube with glazed ends, carefully orientated to ensure privacy’.

Inside the house, a three-storey chandelier – handmade by the architects on site – hangs down through the stairwell using 580m of fibre optic cable and slivers of acrylic (pictured right).
