Cleverly Stacked Floors Form a Roomy House On a Tight Lot


In London, Kirkwood McCarthy crafts a house where furniture workshops once stood.

In London’s Bethnal Green district, on a site that once housed furniture workshops, Kirkwood McCarthy created a three-story home that cleverly blends into its surroundings. Thanks to a cranked roofline, an upper level addition provides room for an ample master suite without blocking the neighbors’ access to daylight. Double-height windows bring light streaming into sunken living spaces. All of this is hidden behind a façade that harmonizes perfectly with the area’s terraced run. No longer a workshop, the home is now a jewel box.
