In South East London, nestled between historic buildings like Victorian terraced houses and mews houses stands a modern light-filled detached home. The house is designed by 31/44 Architects, who are award winning architects and this modern house also won a prestigious RIBA award.
The floorplan of the house is centered around three private courtyards that also connect the indoor rooms with the green outdoors. Indoors, they used a lot of birch-faced joinery cabinets to divide spaces while still maintaining an open-flowing floorplan.
Parhaps the greatest feature of this home is the curved timber staircase with a large picture window. It’s a great architectural feature that connects the two floors.
From the hallway, you enter this light kitchen with built-in handmade cabinets and a big kitchen skylight that brings a lot of light to this room.
The ground floor has an open layout with wooden cabinets that serve as room divider and storage space. From the kitchen you can see right through to the staircase (as pictured here) and the living room.
The living room has access to two courtyards. Behind the pink couch is a lovely gray statement wall that includes a picture ledge.
To create a harmonious look throughout the home, the cabinets are all in the same wood style.
Next to the kitchen, is a home office that can be closed off with a space saving pocket door.
The home office has one wall that is filled with String shelves to provide open storage space. The office also has access to one of the courtyards.
A beautiful curved wooden staircase leads to the first floor that houses the master suite.
Just as in the downstairs rooms a diving wall is created with birch face wood cabinets. It also doubles as a nightstand.
Behind the master bedroom is a snug/tv room.
The house has three courtyards surrounded by greenery.
The home is currently for sale at Aucoot
