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.
