Macdonald Wright Parkholme Road

We waited outside a completely normal looking Victorian terraced-house chatting with a lovely man from San Francisco who also hadn’t booked a visit but were all welcomed in regardless and for me, this house was the polar opposite of Ed’s Shed. Such a practical and comfortable home, beautifully detailed and considered and so well connected to the outside.

With the oversize doors and hinged wall panels, open spaces flowed into each other and we both really liked that you had the option and flexibility that real life inevitably requires. It was also striking that personal belongings all had their own special, considered place and I suppose this is the difference between an architect designing a house for a client and designing for themselves. This house must be a joy to live in.

Macdonald Wright Architects’ home and other projects can be found on their website here. Have a look at their cool sketch diagrams.

  1. Hi Atsuko and Joe
    Thanks for your kind words about our home in Parkholme Road. I’m glad you got to come to see us for Open House and enjoyed what you saw (I always try to let everyone in if I can but sorry to those people who I had to turn away at the end of the day when I was putting my children to bed.)
    Best
    James Wright

    • Oooh how nice that you found our words and pictures. I was conscious when posting how strange it was to be writing about someone’s personal, usually private, home. I hesitated to post the photos too in case you wouldn’t want them shared online but I guess this is what London Open House is all about. Nice to hear from you, thankyou so much for sharing your home with us, I really enjoyed the progress photos where you removed the corner of your house to extend the kitchen, what must have been some quite tense times obviously resulted in a beautiful end product.

      Thankyou again. Joe
