Private house, situated on a small site at the end of a Victorian terrace in Camden

The skin is black slim-format glazed brick and inside bookmatched statuarietto marble is used for contrast.

The first floor bathroom is top-lit by a frameless glass ceiling to create the experience of being outside. There are various floor and ceiling levels to modulate the atmosphere.

Integrated joinery and structure are made from various treatments of laminated larch. The fittings and furnishings, such as the kitchen cabinetry, are made from elm; stainless steel and doors are marble and spray lacquered. Other materials used include granite, laser cut timber and African fabrics.
