MIMA Light is an iconic object, pure and sophisticated like a minimal art sculpture. The base of the scheme is lined with mirrors, an architectural gesture influenced by the minimalist sculpture of artists such as Donald Judd, John Mccracken and Robert Morris. The rational external design is complemented with comfortable interiors — clad with pine wood and featuring chrome details. (text by MIMA HOUSING)

Forrester Architects excavate to create a more generous room volume. The roof provides an enlivened architectural language to the rear gardens of this mid-terraced house in North London.

Haus Stein is the result of the conversion of an unused barn from the 1930’s into a holiday home.
