Designer Suzy Hoodless worked closely with Johnny Holland of Hackett Holland architects on the extensive renovation of this Victorian house in London.
Several clever, glazed elements give Johnny's conversion its particular allure. Undivided windows give a view all the way to the entrance hall, and reveal a double-height bespoke lighting installation, which hangs above the coffee table from Mint.
The gorgeous little garden, landscaped by Alasdair Cameron, features white cobblestones, slim, silver-birch trees, and a living wall dotted with birdhouses.
Out of view, on the lower-ground level and accessed from the basement, is a miniature smoking yard. Something of a sunken surrealist urban folly, resplendant with outdoor stone mantelpiece. See inside the house here.
