Name: Islington House
Designer: Neil Dusheiko Architects
Location: London, England
Islington House is a minimalist house located in London, England, designed by Neil Dusheiko Architects. The interior of the existing ground floor has been completely gutted and re-imagined as a sequence of spaces connecting living, kitchen and dining through changes in section. The kitchen forms the fulcrum and heart of the house with views to the living room on the upper level and to the dining room on the lower level, which also connects to the garden.
Extensive use of skylights brings the sunlight deep into the heart of the house. The white box of the extension floats on a single exposed column and the existing staircase lining forms a faceted geometrical connection allowing inside and out side to blend seamlessly through an angled skylight above the kitchen. Bespoke western red cedar shutters deal with privacy while providing warmth to the flank façade.
