This project is the redevelopment of a cramped site in Chiswick, west London. Planning restrictions prevented windows on three edges of the site; we therefore had to find creative solutions to bring light into the houses. We also placed emphasis on maximizing the opportunities for storage throughout, avoiding any redundant space: cupboards, shelves and bookcases are built into walls, below staircases and in roof spaces.
Each house has its own private terrace or garden.
Tight against the back wall, each kitchen remains bright under a large rooflight.
