Location: Hackney, London, United Kingdom

THISS revamped the home of local jewellery designer William Cheshire in London’s Broadway Market. A Victorian attic flat, with 70s add-ons, above a nail salon on the bustling Mare Street in Hackney, the property was originally purchased 1999, and over the course of a decade, William has hand-crafted unique finishes and joinery features, often present in his own unique designs, throughout the property. It was important to highlight these details through new space and light in the renovations.

Having inserted a mezzanine and creating double height space, he wanted to add an extra storey for more living space. THISS added a discreet sunken new volume into the flat at the same level. The low level of the floor gave generous ceiling heights for a new bedroom and bathroom space with access to a sunken roof rear terrace, overlooking the Hackney skyline. William’s partner is head designer at plant nursery and restaurant Petersham Nurseries and has added her designs to the terrace to create a gothic-inspired rooftop garden.

Otago Bay House / Topology Studio

Located on a lazy bend of the Derwent River in Hobart, this house accentuates the drama of living on the water’s edge. Connections with the landscape oscillate between enclosure and embrace. A courtyard, a colonnade, ledges and terraces soften the distinction between house and landscape with a series of steps and paths.
