House for an Artist, Ellsworth Street, London

A two bedroom mews house on the site of an existing warehouse designed with a studio space and an exhibition space for an east London artist.

The buildings form takes the profile of the existing warehouse and carves new spaces into it helping to bring light into each room while also ensuring privacy and security for the new house and its neighbors. The resulting utilitarian volume continues a language of industrial development into residential use familiar throughout the area.

New extrusions, sections of floor to ceiling glass and delicate detailing help to add refinement to a palette of robust materials tying together the buildings two uses into a single architectural expression while still maintaining organizational separation.

An intensive green roof provides the same balance between durable characteristics and modern techniques and contributes to the biodiversity of the local area while creating a green outlook for the surrounding houses.
