The family that lived in it House With a new guest bedroom and lots of storage in the UK, more space was needed to create music and plan photo shoots.
They liked it too Open layout The house is full of attractive materials and works of art without losing the wonderful character of the residence. For work, they called Cairn Architecture Office.
The existing upper floor has been converted into a family space connecting the Victorian bedrooms below with the loft extension above.
The paneled walls can be fully folded back to connect with the rest of the house and share daylight from the large skylight in the high ceiling.
The loft is accessed via a steel and oak staircase that echoes the materials of the original staircase and hints at the contemporary space above. Extensive glazing on the vaulted ceiling allows light to penetrate deep into the home.
Plywood panels line the loft space, with an integrated workspace and a bespoke storage system that allows the double bed to slide into the eaves.
A door leads from the master bedroom to the master bedroom. Armchairs, wardrobes and a free-standing bathtub create a sanctuary that combines elements of a closet, living room and private bathroom.
Downstairs, a vibrant family bathroom contrasts with the natural materials used in the rest of the house.
Work carefully maintains the atmosphere at home. Panels connect new rooms with existing finishes and hide new storage spaces and doors. Carefully inserted openings bring daylight into rich interiors and create spatial connections that support shared family life.
