NOTTING HILL MAISONETTE No 1Eclectic 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.

This is an example of a medium sized bohemian formal enclosed living room in London with grey walls, a standard fireplace, a stone fireplace surround, medium hardwood flooring, a freestanding tv and brown floors. —  Houzz

Architect Your Home added this to 10 Vital Questions to Ask Before Knocking Down a Wall5 January 2018

Do I need Planning Permission or any other consents?If your building works are wholly internal, you’re unlikely to need specific Planning Permission. However, Building Regulations will need to be adhered to. Your architect can assist here, or you can contact your local planning department to talk through the regulations that will apply to the work you’re doing. They’ll also advise you on what information you’ll need to submit to allow them to assess, and hopefully pass, the work carried out.

Sarah Warwick added this to 10 New Staircases That Make an Impact in Period Properties30 August 2017

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

Victoria Harrison added this to Is Open-plan Living Over or is it Here to Stay?5 January 2016

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? Or are you a fan of more intimate spaces? Please share your thoughts in the Comments below.
