A 1940s terraced home on a leafy London street was recently renovated by architecture and interior design firm Hamilton King into a vibrant and contemporary space for a growing family. Featuring a beautiful bespoke kitchen that found unlikely muse from a famous Manchester nightclub, the four-bedroom dwelling has just hit the market at $2,000,000.
Spread out across three floors, the nearly 1,500-square-foot abode was once much darker than its current light-filled appearance. The kitchen area—originally a third of its size—was expanded in the side and back, creating more room for storage and dining.
A seamless connection to the back garden has been achieved through a glass-paned pivot door. The home's Maximo floor tiles with underfloor heating also continue from the kitchen to the outdoor patio.
In a bid to turn a structural pillar in the kitchen into a visual feature, the architect and clients drew inspiration from The Hacienda, a legendary 1980s nightclub in Manchester with striking yellow-and-black pillars.
While the pillar was painted a vibrant yellow, the metalwork and the walls of the glass-roofed side return were painted a matte black to carry over the yellow-and-black color scheme.
Bespoke oak and ply cabinetry, designed and supplied by the architects, provide plenty of storage from the tall oak cupboard that hides the fridge to the pop-open square cupboards above the sink.
The first floor comprises of two bedrooms as well as a family bathroom on the split-level below, while two more bedrooms—one of which is currently converted into a study—are set on the second floor above.
