Let there be light – RIBA lists a luminous mews conversion
“A piece of joinery crafted to live in” is how RIBA judges described this converted London mews property, now on the longlist for RIBA’s House of the Year competition
Coffey Architects, who were responsible for the design, retained a traditional facade but reconfigured the interior space to feature a glazed roof, glass landings and an entirely glazed ground floor to maximise light. The different levels within the building are accessed by an oak staircase with open treads, which also allows light to penetrate.The judges described the design as “A fine marriage of planning, control of light and rigorous detailing [which] has very cleverly multiplied the use of space.” If you are looking for a cleverly converted mews house with plenty of space and light, Lurot Brand can help.
