This project refurbishes and remodels one of the few houses within the Grade 2 listed Barbican Estate, sensitively remodelling it to meet the requirements of contemporary family life, whilst retaining its original character. The existing house is arranged over a number of floors, which are re-ordered to maximise relationships between living space and the exterior terrace at roof level. Elsewhere the cellular nature of the rooms is adjusted to offer more open-ness, with the original open timber staircase as their collective and connecting focus. A new kitchen was provided and a new bathroom and dressing rooms on the ground floor relate to the master bedroom.
Collectively the additions and adjustments define a calm and well functioning background, ready for inhabitation.
