Canyon House
by Studio Hagen Hall

Winner: House interior of the year 2021 Studio Hagen Hall has created a live/work residence for two young musicians.

Canyon House was conceived for two young musicians who wanted to recreate their affection for Modernist Californian homes when renovating a dilapidated 70's terrace in North London.

The house is divided into three distinct parts: a flexible upper ground floor living space and open kitchen for entertaining; calm, intimate sleeping quarters on the upper floor; and a professional, acoustically isolated writing and recording studio on the lower ground floor. Quality of design is at the heart of the house, from the choice of materials, to the creation of versatile, visually connected and enjoyable spaces.

Judges' comments: This project has a very beautiful selection of materials. The space feels timeless and really brings all the different elements together naturally. You can tell the designer has put careful thought into every decision. There is a narrative that takes you through the house with a lot of really complex detail.
