De Rosee Sa designed a modern house in West London for a client who lived across the road from the old timber storage yard. The most stunning part of this amazing interior design project were the modern floor lamps that are to die for.
A trio of courtyards covered in cobbles and surrounded by glass break up this London home, which has cedar-lined walls that reference the old timber store it replaces.
The architects were challenged to design a residence in line with strict planning restrictions stipulating that the structure matches the height of the former single-storey shed. Three internal courtyards and a series of skylights were used to bring plenty of natural light into the long-and-thin residence aptly named Courtyard House.
These courtyards also separate the plan into three chunks: a combined kitchen and dining area, a lounge and a two-storey bedroom block created by digging down to form a basement. Crittall-style glazing and doors enclose the courtyards, allowing for views into and through the outdoor space.
The doors can also be opened up in warm weather to allow fresh air into the house from the granite-paved yards. The lounge opens directly to the front garden on one side and to a yard on the other, while extra natural light is provided by two roof lights.
The yard links the lounge with the combined kitchen and dining room beyond, which in turn overlooks a sunken courtyard set between it and the two-storey bedroom block.
Red-cedar battens line the walls of the courtyards as both a reference the site’s old use as a timber storage yard and a contrast to the minimal interiors, which have clean white walls and and herringbone-patterned parquet flooring.
Glazed doors bring light into the two bedrooms, which are set one on top of each other alongside their ensuite bathrooms. A third yard, which is much smaller than the other two, also cuts between the bedrooms and bathrooms to provide further lighting.
