Studdridge Tiny Courtyard, London
Construction was due to start on the Studdridge Tiny Courtyard in Parsons Green, London with designs from another architect. The plans were to extend in the basement, at the rear as well as the roof of this Victorian terraced house, however the client was not totally happy with the plans and so approached Unagru Architecture Urbanism to overlook the design aspects of the project.
They say this is not how they normally like to work, but they did reviews the information and proposed a number of alternative design concepts, that were compatible with the structural constraints.
Unagru Architecture Urbanism helped the client understand the spatial, logistic and economic implications of the different proposals. They finally followed the whole detailing and construction process with the clients.
The ground floor was made more fluid, complex and bright through the introduction of two steps between the front and rear areas, and the opening of a small courtyard to light the spine wall area.
The side return extension area was treated as a much more contemporary part of the composition, with flush edges and stone finishes. The basement, with a guest bedroom, utility and storage facilities as well as media and playroom, was detailed a non-compromising contemporary space. A wide opening towards the garden provided ample lighting.
The staircase to the basement has been designed as a piece of joinery, connected with the storage under the stairs and the basement structure through a full height timber railing.
