The Aperture House by Studio McW
Lorenzo Zandri

Studio McW has used architectural apertures as a mechanism for defining spatial experience for a post-lockdown home in London.

The project is an extension to an end-of-terrace Edwardian property in north London. It originated from a new set of requirements from our client after becoming intimately acquainted with the confines of their home during the first national lockdown.

The reorganisation of the ground floor layout is based on carefully placed apertures and openings in the façade, roof and joinery that reconsider domestic threshold and connection in the wake of the pandemic.

The result allows the occupants of the house to be together, but also to be alone, to work and reflect within a space that maintains connection without sacrificing privacy.

This project has been longlisted in the small interiors category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
