3 FLOOR-IN2 APARTMENT, NOTTING HILL LONDON
This project unites two old flats with the insertion of dramatic full height vertical space: a stair rises through three new minor levels that shape this new tall atrium and link into the two main previous floor levels, these made modern. Sunlight beams into the lower, previously shaded north spaces.
A new stage-step type staircase in plywood is cantilevered out and connects the interior levels, through a series of differently figured spaces.
This arrives onto a coffered ceiling structured wood floor that then leads across to the rest of the upper floor over a bridge-like structure traversing the tall atrium. The exterior remains true to its era, but once inside the apartment, the modern sensibility is undeniable, It's a mix of a minimal aesthetic with industrial touches.
