Tactile House is a beautiful split-level family home in Dulwich, completed in June 2017. The project was for a ground floor rear extension, loft conversion and internal alterations throughout.
The ground floor spaces are defined by a varied playground of textures and materials for interactive family living. Painted steel beams, exposed brick, plywood, and rope screens create specific areas for playing, relaxing and eating whilst keeping a feeling of connected space. These areas spill out through steel framed doors and windows to the raised terraced and planting beds before falling towards the garden.
The upper floors are reconfigured to open up bedrooms and bathrooms with a focus on shaping modern and clear interiors. Unique features, such as the reading nook in the upstairs loft, provide spaces to relax with natural light and joinery for handy storage.
It was great to work so closely with the clients on their project to create a beautiful, unconventional and warm-hearted family home.
