Cedar Loft

This loft is clad in cedar shingles, harmonious to the scale and colouring of the London stock brick of the house. Over the course of time, cedar changes colour from warm reddish-yellow to whitish-yellow, the cooler tint complementing the London sky. Deep reveal of the large window flanked with shelves on either side was designed to create a cozy reading nook among the tree tops.

Wire Balustrade with Skylight Above

Ply as stone

Bespoke plywood stair consists of closed winders and a straight run of steps with open risers. The solid winders seem to be hewn from a solid piece of multi-layered ply, reminiscent of a block of excavated limestone. A wire balustrade creates a continuous fall protection, which feels safer than conventional height balustrades. It also directs an eye towards, and frames Рthe skylight above.
