It’s all about the angle at one particular residence in Hammersmith, London. In response to a brief to remodel and extend a three-bedroom two-storey Edwardian house that was in need of considerable refurbishment and modernisation, Paul McAneary Architects have created a strongly geometric design that plays with 30° twisting to achieve intriguing physical and perspectival overlapping. One of the desired results of this is that the garden now functions as a continuation of the interior space.

The sculptural façade features self-healing zinc, which holds large seamless glass panels, allowing a large volume of light to penetrate the interior. A floating external deck continues the visual play of sharp angles.
