A former garment workshop in East London has been transformed into a private interior/exterior living space. At ground-floor level a glazed screen separates the newly surfaced yard from the interior kitchen/living/dining space. A new stair rises along the light-soaked rear gallery to a bathing area on the open landing. At first-floor level, sleeping and bathing areas (with a sliding timber screen and shutters for privacy) are designed around a central storage partition. A new, partially transparent mezzanine sleeping platform bridges the horizontal division between bed and bath. Finishes are in inexpensive materials such as richly grained Latvian birch plywood and black Cumbrian slate. The structural engineer was Harris & Sutherland, and the main contractor was L J Slater/Ken Robbins, with subcontractor Jeff Bell Cast Glass. The cost was £55,000.
