Spitalfields House has been longlisted by Don’t Move, Improve!
We’re proud to announce Spitalfields House has been longlisted by Don’t Move, Improve! this year, NLA’s annual competition and programme celebrating the best homes being redesigned in London.
The scheme design proposes a warm and minimal materials palate that seeks to maximise the texture and inherent visual and tactile qualities of raw materials such as micro-concrete toppings, timber, raw plaster, zinc, limestone pebbles and pavers, and blackened metal linings. The Ground and Basement Levels are comprised of large open plan family living and dining spaces with direct visual connection to the front and rear ‘zen’ garden, whilst the upper floors offer three large en-suite bedrooms with extensive hardwood timber joinery and exterior balcony features.
When Common Ground Workshop took on the commission, the site comprised the original structure as well as the initial layout work and partial construction of the building superstructure at all levels, undertaken by Studio Idealyc. CGW worked with the concrete superstructure walls, concrete stairs and floors in the living spaces, and the roof dormer construction and its pocket balcony concept, and developed a series of minimal, flexible and sustainable spaces that responded to the owner’s current needs, spatially, stylistically and environmentally.
