mews 02

Belsize Park

Mews 02 is an ambitious redevelopment of an existing mechanics garage.  The single residence was converted into a 4 level family home, with an emphasis on the entertaining areas and private compartments for sleeping.

An important aspect of this building is how the light is captured creatively, immediately one senses the playful use of light and dark, black on white.  Using glazed and wooden screens, and natural vegetation screens gives the space a unique atmosphere throughout the day and transforms the space at night.

The surface materials provide an experience of movement through the building mapping out the route with its slippery black glazed monolith rising through the 4 levels.
