NOTTING HILL MAISONETTE No 1 Eclectic Living Room, London

This project involved the remodelling of the ground and first floors and a small rear addition at a Victorian townhouse in Notting Hill.

The brief included opening-up the ground floor reception rooms so as to increase the illusion of space and light, and to fully benefit from the view of the landscaped communal garden beyond.

Stairs ? - Could you let me know how the stairs are constructed (steel with wood cladding perhaps ?) and the company that designed and built them ?

Hello Alex, did you ever get an answer? Do you know how these were constructed?

The large opening between the kitchen-dining area and the lounge might appear original, but again it was created by Fletcher, with architraves added to re-create that crucial period feel. Sliding doors mean the dining and living zones can be separated if needs be. ‘The opening lines up exactly with the window at the back of the house,’ says Fletcher. This allows light to funnel through the room beautifully.An orange lamp adds a dash of retro colour.Spun T2 table lamp by Sebastian Wrong, The Conran Shop.

Homes need to adapt to changing family needsIt will be fascinating to see how our homes continue to evolve and what an open-plan layout might look like in the future. ‘Buildings have to adapt over time to meet the occupants’ ever-changing needs,’ Andrew Brown says. ‘It’s very difficult to predict how family life will be structured in 20 years’ time. It will be interesting to see how the changing make-up of households, with an increasing number of multi-generational families living together due to house price increases etc, will impact on the current trend for open-plan living.’TELL US…Do you have an open-plan layout?

Cover all anglesThe staircase in this apartment has a sculptural quality that makes it a beautiful feature of the through living-dining space. The timber finish has appealing grain and colour when seen from above and below. Note how it complements the herringbone of the wood floor, with the angles repeated in the shape of the stairs themselves. If you have a through room, opt for a glass balustrade like this one to avoid blocking the view along the space. See how a reconfigured staircase can unlock your interior
