Non Boxy Lofty
This first floor flat was in much need of repair and we were approached by a young client to design a way to extend the spaces at roof level. We looked at the traditional way of forming bedroom spaces at loft level and designed an inverse plan with the kitchen and dining spaces looking out over the rooftops with the bedrooms underneath them.

To bring as much light into the landing and living spaces as possible a perforated metal staircase drops through the spaces connecting the two levels. Red zinc was used to clad the loft spaces with a sedum roof bringing a biodiverse habitat to the top of the building.
