Burghley Road – Private House, Camden

  • Budget: Not disclosed
  • Status: Completed 2014

This project is centred on the creation of a new basement beneath a terraced houe to provide open plan family living space for a young couple working in new media, and their two young children.

The basement is intended to be the opposite of the low-ceilinged white box. We wanted to re-create the urban loft underground – exposed steelwork and brickwork, tall and varied ceiling heights, and spaces that feel discovered rather than ‘planned’.
