DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
GC House by YourArchitectLondon

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
House

INSPIRATION:
The brief from the client was simple. They asked for a house in which the natural light flows through around. A glass staircase links all floors, allowing light to flow effortlessly through the property, with views up through the home to create a sense of space and continuity. The project involved a complete renovation of a Victorian terraced house in West London into a bright home, and included a kitchen extension, loft and basement conversion. The design built within the facade of a Victorian home, and sought to modernize it whilst remaining respectful to the existing exterior.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Natural light was at the heart of this project. Born out of the need to expand a Victorian property for a growing family, the core ambition was to create a flexible living space that reflected a new approach to contemporary design, characterised by light and simplicity. Minimal sightlines and subtle textures generate a sense of relaxation and harmony, whilst clear and frosted glass, oak and douglas fir run throughout the home to create a series of interconnected spaces that inspire social and flexible living

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The stairs connect the different levels of the house and bring the natural light all around, which makes out a feeling of harmony and important element of the design.The douglas fir and oak herringbone gives out a warm atmosphere. The design opens up the spaces to connect them generating social spaces linked through the stair in three floors (reception, kitchen and entertainment room).

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in November 2014 in London and finished in September 2016

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Clear and frosted glass, matte white aluminium, white decoration and douglas fir and oak herringbone for flooring and furniture too.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
GA: 3950 sq.f on four levels of a terrace house in Fulham, West London

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The architect did an approach on how the refurbish a victorian terrace house in London into a bright home where you can socialize easily on the open plan areas, with a fresh and bright strategy. This approach is totally opposed to the nature of the terrace houses in London, which makes a bit challenging how to solve the new structure to make possible the linked spaces and openings for bringing the natural light.

CHALLENGE:
Both cantilevers of the glass stairs and dining table were technically challenging as well as the whole new structure of the house around the skylights.
