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. (more…)

The project consists of 236 apartments in two U-shaped blocks with inner courtyards opening towards the harbour. Varying heights of 5 to 8 storeys visually reduce the scale of the project and, along with the thin proportions of the glass partitions, give the white façades a light and graceful appearance. The entire project, including the projecting bays, is rendered in warm white stucco with teak fenestration, giving the entire project a maritime feel.
