Modernist Master Adolf Loos Inspired This Split-Level Home Extension

Though the spaces are on different levels, there's a continuous sight line from front to back

A rad new extension project in London, a city overflowing with innovative home extensions it seems, finds inspiration in influential early Modernist architect Adolf Loos. Completed by local firm William Tozer Architects, the project follows Loos' defining "Raumplan" concept, which eschews the flat stacking of floors in favor of spaces distinctly sized and sequenced based on function. In practice, this means a split-level floor plan with short staircases and several landings.

Though the spaces, a linear sequence that contains a studio, kitchen, living room, and master bedroom (in that order), are on different levels, there's a continuous sight line from the front to the back. Head to Dezeen for the full story.
