The project was featured in The Sunday Times, Ignant, and The Modern House among others.
Studio McW was founded by David McGahon and Greg Walton. The practice operates across London and the UK, with a young talented team, working on a diverse typology of sectors including high-end private residential and mixed-use schemes. The practice projects are characterized by unexpected and surprising architectural details, with the use of natural materials that portray an element of craft.
Despite being in a state of disrepair, the home retained many of the original features of the proportions of the spaces. We were asked to carefully extend the property, emphasizing and enhancing the original features and making sure the modern extension reflected the existing proportions of the home. We used a restrained palette of solid oak Dinesen timber with marble to create a generous family home.
“On the one hand it’s incredibly simple, but it relies on good quality materials that have been really well installed with attention paid to all the tiny details”
– Kate Watson-Smyth (Mad About The House)
