Previously, the house had been sub-divided into five individual studio flats, and the brief was to restore it to a modern single family home. While retaining the original feature-staircase on the upper floors Sanya Polescuk Architects continued vertical circulation down to the lower ground floor by creating a new, sinuous flight of steps. Restoring the flow previously interrupted by the building’s former compartmentalisation.
The architects also added external flights of stairs to both the front and rear of the house to enable simultaneous connections to the private rear garden and public pavement.
The planning permission for this project was granted from Camden Council without any objections.
