[FIRST LOOK + PLANS + DATA] Paul+O Architects has converted two Victorian terraced houses into a single home in west London
The 410m2 scheme in the West Kensington Conservation Area has transformed a pair of neighbouring terraces into a double-width, five-bedroom home.
The open-plan ground floor space, which contains the house’s living areas, is divided by ‘floating boxes’ that contain the fireplace, storage, and kitchen units. Full height ‘staggered’ windows at the rear of the house provide these communal spaces with natural light and uninterrupted views of the east-facing garden.
Accessed by a ‘feature’ staircase that connects all four storeys, the first floor contains the master bedroom suite, which opens on to a rear terrace, and additional bedrooms are placed on the second floor. The basement contains additional living spaces and utility areas.
A simple palette of traditional materials is used throughout the house, basalt and fumed oak timber on the floors, basalt showers, dark stained timber windows, dark bronze ironmongery and off white plastered walls throughout.
