FLOW Architecture and Magrits present the almost complete demolition and reconstruction of a Victorian terraced house in Kensington, London. The four-storey end-of-terrace house is situated on a quiet, leafy road in the coveted London area and was built in 1851.
Light Falls challenges the traditional way of inhabiting historical housing. The project provides a solution to poor quality of light inside the building caused by the compartmentalised Victorian layout. Spatial planning was driven by maximising the potential for natural light and the fluidity of the vertically stacked living spaces.
The house is subject to planning restrictions which dictate that its external appearance must be largely preserved. Because of this, Light Falls' new features are concentrated towards the core of the building, with the reorganisation revolving around a new interior courtyard that acts as a visual centre to the living spaces.
