The interior of a new house in Central London

Fin House is a new house initially developed by small a developer in Central London.

The client purchased one of the plots as the superstructure was nearing completion and approached RA Projects with the brief of completely redesigning the interiors.

The main idea is to create an open plan ground floor, containing living room, study and a kitchen and dining area.

Sitting in the centre, and running through the house from basement to first floor is a steel sculpture which forms the stairs.

It sits on the ground floor as a separate element and is wrapped with shelving towards the study and fins that penetrate the ceiling towards the first floor. This screen gives the sculpture a distinctive character of its own, while maintaining permeability between the dining area and the living space.

Other rooms in the house also have atmospheres of their own with bespoke colours, tiles and lacquered joinery.
