SLOT HOUSE LONDON W12
AUA has remodelled an end of terraced house to provide a greater and more free owing accommodation for a family. The design brief was one of simplicity and complete functionality while maintaining an underlining warmth a house should infuse. Visual connectivity both inside and out were also drivers in the building’s rear ground oor form.
The driving concept behind this design was for there to
be a clear visual connection between the ground and new basement playroom. With open plan living now the norm
in the modern era of residential space planning one has to balance this large volume of space with a scale that instils a feeling of warmth. By creating 3 distinct rooms of Basement play; Front ground living & Rear ground kitchen / dining on 3 di erent levels, we have achieved a sense of scale and intimacy whilst visually linking each through an open stairs design.
Furthermore the use of large syklights and the positioning of new windows to the extension lter light where needed whilst providing glimpses of the outside that serve the new basement. The combination of distinct rooms, natural light and a visual connection between these spaces, both inside and out, makes for a warm and open living space.
