Long before designing high-profile projects like the new spaceship-like Apple headquarters or towers for the star-studded Battersea Power Station redevelopment, Norman Foster's firm completed a humble little renovation project in the Hampstead area of London, turning a 1862 coach house into an airy two-bedroom home. The 1,962-square-foot dwelling is now on the market for the first time since Foster+Partners remodeled and extended it between 1968 and 1970, looking largely unchanged.
Embodying Foster's high-tech style of architecture, the house features a ton of exposed steel roof trusses, blockwork walls, and glazing. The focal point of the home is a double-height dining area with pitched glazed roof, which is just a few steps away from a glassy reception room that overlooks the garden. The rest of the home includes an ensuite bedroom on each floor—the one on the second floor opens out to a 600-square-foot terrace.
