Evergreen Apartment - OPENSTUDIO
Evergreen Apartment

The philosophy of this London project is to erode the boundaries between building and landscape, so that the spaces of the interior stretch through into the garden and the garden enters the interior. The new extension is planted with an evergreen creeper; a long, lean skylight stretches along the length of the extension, allowing light to penetrate deeply into the interior and giving the owners a view of the sky from inside their living space.

The experience of the site alters from the green and white garden at the street, to an intensification of colour and materials as the inhabitants and visitors move through the spaces. The palette of materials is deliberately kept simple, but inherently rich.
