CALABRIA ROAD

A conversion of two flats in a Victorian-era terrace into a family home in London.  The ground floor was opened up with a series of moves that cater to contemporary family living.  The typical narrow entrance corridor was reconfigured to make an entry porch and a separate mud-room for storing bikes and prams.  The utility room and dividing walls at the back were removed to make one generous kitchen, dining and living space.   A desk was placed along the existing shop-front windows to accomodate the client's graphic-design business.  Finally, a large rooflight, glass floor  and big sliding doors were introduced to bring in some much-needed light.
