Originally built in 1935 as a school science laboratory, art department and canteen, the house has been converted from two independent flats over two floors back into one single 4-bedroom family home with wild flower green roof and private roof terrace.
The first floor has been fully opened up to allow the large windows flood the 100 sqm kitchen, dining and living space with an abundance of natural light with the addition of a fourth bedroom/home office.
The house had to be completely stripped back to its brick and concrete structure in order to install high-quality insulation to all external walls and roof, exposing the pot and beam concrete ceilings again, resulting in stunning 3.2 tall ceilings.
New fittings and metalwork are in keeping with the original style of architecture.
The original parquet flooring was refurbished and period-correct steel framed windows reinstated.
A new central staircase connects the ground- with the first floor and acts as a spatial zoning element defining kitchen, dining and living area.
A new metal staircase allows access through a large skylight to the private roof terrace with stunning views across Waltham Forest. New fittings are in keeping with the original style of architecture where possible whilst all internal doors consist of state of the art frame-less doors to create a minimal and understated look
The bespoke steel stairs have a metal mesh in-between each step to let light through creating a wonderful shadowy pattern on the walls.
