homify 360°: Book tower house, London

The oddly titled Book Tower House in London by Platform 5 Architects was a personal favourite. We love seeing modern renovations of traditional terrace homes; adding modernity without sacrificing tradition. An extension and remodelling project, the Book Tower House features a kitchen extension and a cascading book shelf, housing hundreds of colourful books. Click here to take the full tour.

Welsh Farmhouse

There is nothing more British than a quaint stone cottage in the countryside. One perfect example is this Welsh farmhouse, which lay unused and neglected for over 40 years. Before it fell into a state of disrepair, it was lovingly restored to its former glory. Want to see the final result? Click here to see it again.

Before - Bedroom by homify



Topping this week's list is a basement conversion project in Bayswater, West London. Purchased for £320,000 and sold for £675,000 only six months later, the one bed apartment underwent an almost unbelievable transformation.

Click the link here to see how The Lady Builder turned a damp and dark basement into a bright and luxurious inner-city home; you will be amazed.
