TG Studio has renovated this house in the centre of Highgate; the house is located in a private estate bordering the Hampstead Heath, the biggest Park in London. The property that occupies six mid-levels was built in the 70’s by Ted Levy and sites in a conservation area. It had not been renovated since 40 years and was in a bad state of disrepair.
The studio opened up the ground floor by removing all internal walls and making the kitchen open plan. The existing staircase was changed and rebuild in its entirety. The staircase is the heart and spine of this house connecting the six mid-levels and thoughtful detailing was developed to create a feature that is as minimal as possible. The staircase consists of solid pine steps, glass balustrade and a white painted wood stringer. Glass risers instead of wood allow the light to shine through the steps.
Dinesen flooring was selected as the floor surface for the entire house as it can be bought in 350mm width and 6m lengths. The house was stripped of everything down to the old blockwork and a new modern home created in which white and simplicity should rule.
Stephen Woodham designed the small town garden and specified the planting.
