homemade single family residence by bureau de change

‘homemade’ single family residcence by bureau de changefront facade

 

 

‘homemade’ is the first residential scheme by london-based design studio bureau
 de change. the project takes two neighbouring houses and merges them into a 
single family home with a new extension providing a kitchen and living space at the
 rear of the lot. the plan connects the two properties by opening up many of the
 dividing walls and creating openings to give visibility, access and a more unified feel.

 

the ‘heart’ of the family space is created through an oak-wrapped box which sits at the meeting point between the original house and the new family room. within this fabric is contained
 storage, partitions and a new cloakroom. at its edge sections of timber are peeled
 at right angles to form an open staircase leading to the floors above. 
beyond this core sits the new kitchen and dining space – created by wrapping the
 entire rear facade in glass, as though the two buildings are being physically pulled
 together by the glazing.

the 11 metre-long façade consists of tall sliding glass doors which blur the
 boundary between the inside and outside. at the edges, the glass doors ‘climb’ over
the original building, creating skylights and windows with the same finish and
 detailing. inside this space, the steel kitchen islands are hidden within two oversized
resin shells which appear to have been pulled up from the floor.

  • diz, no need to be ignorant to dislike this chair. What’s the point of having a unic great house and putting in it the most common furniture when there are millions of interesting pieces ? snobbery of owning an Eames ? prestige ?
    Sorry for my poor grammar I’m not english (may be you meant spelling ?)
    aside from that, it is a wonderful space.

  • With all that space they still managed to squash a heavy table like that up against the wall. Well thought out guys!

  • Jim, your ignorance of contemporary furniture design as well as basic grammar is offensive…aside from that, it is a wonderful space.

  • I love the cleanliness and textures. Put the stoopid plastic chair on the curb.
