Located in Westminster’s Queen Park Conservation Area, this Victorian terraced family home suffered from a cramped ground floor layout and a lack of natural light to the narrow kitchen at the rear.
Essex Mews is a RIBA London Regional Award winning project that was constructed on a former back land site, which was characterised by detached and semi-detached Victorian houses.

The owners thought the steps down to the original kitchen were a negative aspect of the property but MW Architects immediately saw the potential to connect the three key living spaces and open it up into a dramatic but functional family space.
The Dalarna house was specifically situated along a north to south axis so that the homeowners can have the morning sun at breakfast and, as the day goes on, enjoy the sunset from the master bedroom. The construction uses timber framing built on a concrete floor slab and is clad in pine treated with a traditional timber preservative.
A family in Ealing, with three children, commissioned Office S&M to refurbish their house. We created a child-friendly house in the broadest sense of the word, adding curves to the walls, a playful snakes-and-ladders bannister to the new room, and an arched window for each child.
