Shedding more light on Pilgrim's Lane house

  • Comment

We were glad to hear that Richard Toosey liked SHH's house at Pilgrim's Lane, London (AJ Focus 1.1.02). In answer to his question about light coming into the master bedroom (AJ 14.2.02), the photograph predates occupation.

While the main window does now have curtains, the window beneath the curved roof does not.We did in fact leave a cavity in the wall below, so a curved and motorised bespoke shutter could be installed, rising vertically on the switch of a button.

In the end, our developer client chose not to go ahead with this option, believing that the window afforded complete privacy because of its height and that the amount of light that would stream in would mean only a gentle awakening for the bedroom's incumbents - and a rather romantic starlit night view to boot.
