Intervention Architecture designed this 657-square-foot live/work studio that features a double-height, indoor-outdoor living room and a cozy mezzanine bedroom.
Faux timber doors, painted black, along with a brick facade help the dwelling blend with its surroundings: the Victorian homes of the Moseley neighborhood in Birmingham, UK.
The home's rear is thoroughly modern. Blue bricks, salvaged from the preexisting building, are now the pavers in the entrance and patio.
"The natural wax finish oak timber floor boards," write the architects, "create a soft and inviting sense of warmth within the space."
The kitchen features a porcelain tile backsplash and a quartz countertop.
A compact workspace is perched atop the mezzanine level and has views to the garden in the rear.
The bed is located just behind the desk.
