Nevern Square Apartment Has a Highly Optimized and Bespoke Design (1)

Nevern Square Apartment was designed by Daniele Petteno Architecture Workshop in London, UK.

Description by DPAW: In the centre of London a 69 sqm un-modernised apartment at the raised ground floor of an 1880’s monumental residential building has been turned into a practical and beautiful home for a young family, with the highest living standards and plenty of clever and innovative design solutions.

The design concept started from the reinterpretation, in a very contemporary way, of the British Edwardian 2-rooms layout, with one big room at the front and one at the rear, typical in these houses, to reveal somehow the original rooms proportions and enhance the two beautiful and monumental windows at the front.

The geometry of the spaces is in this layout generated by the balanced intersection of 2 opposite ‘L’. The White ‘L’ which is full height (3,80 m), is made of partitions, and incorporates a number of useful wardrobes and cupboards and defines the overall layout of the apartment with the main corridor, a Kitchen-dining-living open space at the front and the master bedroom en-suite at the rear. The Black ‘L’, which is 2,25 m high, is made of a bespoke furniture and has multiple functions: Kitchen, Spirits bar, CD/DVD storage, TV furniture, etc…

It is the intersection between these two ‘L’ that generates the element that mostly characterized the project: a wide glazed internal opening, enclosed by fixed glass, which gives to the front and rear rooms an extraordinary visual depth and continuity, and that can be screened anyway when needed. This opening really works like an additional big widow inside the house, allowing to enjoy the natural daylight during the whole day, and giving the impression that both the Living area at the front and the Master bedroom at the rear would double face (front and rear) the external spaces, with the very pleasant result required by the clients.

Thanks to a highly optimized and bespoke design, it has been possible to organize in a depth of only 10.85 m and through a tidy and fluent linear sequence: Living-Dining-Kitchen-Master Bedroom-Studio, as required by the clients.
