Bow (the Modern House)
The design exploits the dimensions of a former mechanic’s garage to create a striking set of contemporary living spaces, configured across three storeys, including private courtyard lined with Crittal windows and a secluded roof terrace.
Upon entry, the ambitious nature of the house’s design is immediately apparent. Split levels seem to rise at staggered junctures, beneath large sections of Crittal glazing and open-tread staircases, creating a dramatic sense of scale and volume, while stylishly promoting the flow of natural light throughout. A judicious material palette complements these effects, including polished concrete floors, engineered oak parquet, black steel, exposed brick and extensive sections of glazing.
