An original Georgian home in London, too cramped for the homeowner’s needs, has been completely renovated thanks to scenario architecture. Along with these renovations, the Vertical Living residence received a new, open-plan kitchen, dining area, and living room to the rear. By utilizing every inch of the home, Scenario was able to customize the layout to suit their lifestyle.
The original ground floor and basement were hardly used, although they were allocated as reception rooms. The stairs have been removed and the ground floor cut out to create an open mezzanine floor that allows natural light to flood in, particularly into the former basement. By connecting the two floors, certain uses were divided into two, making them less cluttered. The main color is white and the rooms are given lighter accents and metallic finishes to make them more eye-catching.
The white kitchen flows into the living room with an abrupt transition into a sleek gray wall with an embedded fireplace and bench.
The master bathroom received a Japanese-style bathtub integrated into the continuous surface leading to the sink and storage.
The deck is fully clad in wood, there are elegant white benches and a table, some potted greenery and flowers, and a creative built-in bench with storage units, all clad in the same wood as the deck.
