A house in north London by Paper House Project has been named Interior Design of the Year at the AJ Architecture Awards

The judges praised Defoe Road for creating a generous space with an industrial feel that the property’s buyer loves. The project transformed an abandoned building into a light-filled house in the style of a restored warehouse. 

Working with an engineer, the designer made a series of complex structural interventions in order to minimise visible structure within the space. A polished concrete floor was selected and natural light maximised through the use of new openings and steel‑framed windows.

‘The project made some very brave moves,’ one judge said. ‘There is enough room for a mezzanine but the designer chose not to do this, instead opting for a great double-height space.’ The judges said they had found this category difficult to judge and would have liked to have seen more entries.
