Knott Architects extended and remodelled, to an exacting standard, this modern terraced house on Camden’s popular Murray Mews.

The house, built in 1984, in Murray Mews, Camden, is one of a terrace of 3, designed by three architects, two of whom went on to become founding members of the practice, Child Graddon Lewis.

Knott Architects were invited to remodel and extend the ground floor, with a new weaving room to the front.

The Western Red Cedar box features baffled, obscured, and sky view windows, and a small roof garden.

Subsequently in 2016, Knott Architects remodelled the upper two floors, creating an open plan kitchen dining living space with bespoke built in kitchen and furniture, immaculately crafted from Formica faced birch ply.
