About Mews House

Nestled in the serenity of a quiet West London mews, a mid-terrace house undergoes a transformative refurbishment, tailored for family harmony.

Innovative Design for Family Living

A family’s desire for unity ignites the redesign of this property, aiming to forge a vast, open space for collective moments. The novel layout, adopting an ‘upside down’ structure, positions sleeping quarters on the lower levels and communal areas—kitchen, living, and dining—aloft. This ingenious setup grants each family member their distinct space while promoting togetherness.

Masterful Light Manipulation

Strategically, the renovation emphasizes light diffusion, particularly to the basement, by incorporating glass floors, stepped beds, and a custom perforated staircase. Upstairs, expansive windows not only spotlight the lush trees but also bathe the interior in natural light. Meanwhile, slender windows in the children’s bedrooms capture the mesmerizing dance of passing trains, adding a whimsical touch.

For the children’s sanctuary, designers installed two large sliding pocket doors. This feature transforms the space, merging two rooms and a hallway into a sprawling play area.

This architectural marvel redefines family living, showcasing how design can foster connection and playfulness, all while bathing in natural light.
