a 70s modernist.

A big linear space, not high ceilinged but light and white and bright, with large windows on three sides. A curved, raw brick half-circle creates a dynamic division within the living space, and provides a back-drop for the beautiful metal spiral stair that meanders up to the next level.

The otherwise white box is given texture and mood with a dark timber-lined ceiling, adding interest and warmth. The ceiling opens to form a roof light allowing light to flood in over the kitchen.


FOUR_BEDROOM_LargeThis three-bedroom house was built in the 1970s; the best bits were kept, refurbished and an extension added. In a vibrant part of London, close to the lovely green spaces of Highbury Fields, and it’s for sale… I could, could you?

    I have to say, the spiral stair case and that gorgeous ceiling are the two elements I am loving! Wonderful design overall, really fun room!

      yes, it’s these elements that appeal – the warmth and texture of the brick in a crisp, white environment.. wonderful to have your danish perspective, Marianne.
