Lambeth Marsh House

Lambeth Marsh House is a single-family home renovated by London-based Fraher Architects.

Project description: Lambeth Marsh House had been left unoccupied for over ten years and is a two storey listed house situated within a Conservation area in Lambeth, London. The house was originally developed for artisan workers – in the form of modest, brick built terraced houses, fronting conventional streets.

Our concept and challenge was to breathe new life into all floors, whilst respecting the heritage of this listed building and restoring some of the lost historic detailing. Materiality was very important to help produce a sensitive contemporary design assisting our conservationist approach.

The run down fabric of the existing building required extensive refurbishment with a sensitive approach. Restoring the panelled fireplaces, wood panelling to walls, architraves and skirting to their original condition celebrates the history of this building, whilst the addition of a contemporary rear and side extension compliment and update these features.

The ground floor has been opened out, a large open plan living space creates an new light airy space, whilst a new glazed extension feeds light into the plan of the building. Throughout the traditional setting contemporary furniture updates the spaces for modern living.

Shy Citizen Apartment in Ljubljana / Idealists Studio

The most beautiful discovery while working on Shy Citizen Apartment was definitely a natural stone wall in the bathroom, which gives it a very special touch – some kind of a reminder that despite the new appearance of the apartment is still part of the Castle Hill.
