Revamp Transforms Historic London Flat Into Modern Home

New, 1 comment

In a circa-1800s housing block in London's Hampstead neighborhood, local office Rise Design Studio renovated a historic apartment, injecting some contemporary freshness. The modern look comes courtesy of touches both structural and superficial: the designers removed three interior walls to convert the pad from one organized to branch out from a central corridor to one centered on an open-plan living room and kitchen.

The "flat had no original architecture features of interest," the designers told Dezeen, so they were free to insert muscular exposed-steel braces in the newly open space, geometric floor tiles in the kitchen, translucent sliding screens to divide rooms discreetly, and oak flooring elsewhere.
