Adam and Eve Mews

Constrained on three sides and working on a tight site, the redesign of this traditional mews house focused on increasing floor area and enhancing its natural light.

Woldon approached the remodelling in a three-dimensional manner, reconsidering floor levels and their relationship to the street façade and connecting spaces.

Capitalizing on very high ceilings, the ground floor was raised slightly on one side to allow for a partially submerged basement level with windows onto the street. Special louvres were designed for the basement windows to maximize light penetration.

The house now occupies four floors and a roof terrace. Services are focused at the lower level, liberating the upper levels for bedrooms and living space. The open-plan top floor living space centres around a new hearth and fireplace. Double height roof lights illuminate the space from the east while a large Crittal picture window provides views over gardens to the West.

Careful room organisation and material choices, such as limed oak flooring and glass handrails, enhance the mews’ new qualities of space and lightness.
