Here’s the view into the massive, double height kitchen and dining room space, flooded with natural light through full height windows. Above, the more familiarly constructed floors are visible wrapped in brick. FORMstudio_NarrowHouse_15 In the lower level, we see far more of the rich wood paneling. This is the cinema room, fitted with purpose built chairs for movie watching, as well as a projector and massive screen at the far end. Moving down the natural wood stairs from the living room, we see how the frameless glass balustrade keeps visual lines open throughout the home. The open, airy nature of these elements helps the compartmentalized space feel more expansive. Next to the cinema room, we see the fully equipped home gym, featuring both natural wood paneling and full height, frameless mirrors bracketing the space. Moving outside the living room, we see one of the large terraces, filled with container gardens and a lengthy dining table. A small shaded awning hangs over the entryway. The dining room is wrapped in white and light colors, positively glowing in the natural light provided by the massive, full height windows. A minimalist natural wood table stands surrounded by midcentury modern chairs beneath a large, transparent spherical chandelier. In the light of day, we can see hints of the expansive views available to residents of this home, whether inside behind large windows or outdoors on the rooftop terrace. Here’s a look at the entire home, from ground to roof, its narrow form squeezed into a layered, vertical space. Moving up a floor, we see the distinctly layered construction of the house sprawling linearly between the narrow walls. In this living room area, contemporary furniture meets light hardwood flooring and spare placement of art objects. The bathroom is awash in high contrast, tactile elements, with black tile walls, rich natural wood cabinetry, marble flooring, and a floating vanity with vessel sink. Moving back into the kitchen, we see that the white minimalist space centers on a lengthy island with built-in sink and plenty of room for diners. Light natural wood accents highlight this entire area. Here’s a peek into the entryway, appearing at street level like the entrance to a classy shop or business. The decorative metal screen offers privacy and even space for a small garden. Next to the massive sliding glass door, we see one of many examples of elegantly crafted, neutral toned furniture in the home. This armchair features a minimalist wood frame and button tufted white leather upholstery. On the lower level, we see the light natural wood accents become a major force in the design, wrapping organically around the central elevator core. A simple glass balustrade separates the various levels in this open plan design, making for unbroken sight lines and an expansive sense of space in the relatively narrow home. In this living room, the views over London are gorgeous and bright, courtesy of more full height windows. The glass panels here slide, opening to connect the terrace. The master bedroom features a muted color palette, similar to the elegant tones seen throughout the rest of the home. With a pair of more standard shaped windows, this area is the most traditionally built in the home.
