Leyton House is a minimal residence located in London, United Kingdom, designed by McMahon Architecture. Leyton House was created to take full use of its urban infill location. The design, which consists of two separate blocks: a monolithic stone plinth and an intricately detailed timber structure above, is characterised by its elemental nature. Two courtyards are constructed around a full-length basement below, allowing light to enter the entire design. A sculptural brick chimney that creates a focal point for the bottom floor’s open layout completes the minimalist design. An surprising richness of space and quiet is created with the help of internally exposed architecture and a warm, natural material palette.
