Loft Library

< Back to Projects

This Victorian terrace in North London was inspired by the client’s love of reading, writing and natural beauty.  We created new and beautiful spaces, including an intimate library space in the new loft area, a bespoke kitchen and a light-filled side extension extending out into the garden.

A library to love

We transformed the underused loft space into a wonderfully bright and peaceful place to read, reflect and relax – with fantastic views over the garden and beyond.  Displaying our client’s extensive book collection on a series of bespoke bookcases created a perfect eco-friendly home office space. The careful arrangement of beautiful bespoke joinery maximises both functionality and comfort.

From an idea sparked in our mood boards, we chose a simple palette of dusty green and warm timber. This choice of colours and textures creates the backdrop in a room where a lifetime’s collection of books and treasured objects are the main focus.

Beautiful spaces, connected by nature

The full-height windows and glazed panels on the new loft staircase create a bright spacious feel. Using colours inspired by the natural earthiness of an English garden emphasises the connection between the building and nature.

Opening up and extending the ground floor bespoke kitchen and dining area also help to bring the outside in, with large glass doors and windows for a sense of a light-filled grandeur.
