This south London house has undergone a complete transformation, whilst retaining and restoring original features.
Two small bedrooms on the top floor are separated with a curtain and have both a small loft room to retreat into. This reduces the height-perception of the house and reduces the load on the foundation. A small dormer houses a new small room with views over the city and under the eaves a second bedroom is located. The void space is used to hang nettings across to create hammocks.
