N16 Loft

N16 London, 2015

Plywood balustrade stands out amongst a rather minimal colour palette of the renovated staircase.

A double height window floods the contemporary plywood staircase up to this loft extension in Stoke Newington. The loft provides a nursery, bathroom and double bedroom with a balcony hidden behind the existing parapet that extends the sense of space and light.

Project Leader: Cristina Blanco Montero

‘The initial design process was really fun – looking at all the options and drilling down to a final design.‘
– Lucy & Evan

Large window allowing plenty of sunlight to shine inside the house and onto the bespoke plywood balustrade.

‘They really helped take the fear factor out of a big building project.’
– Lucy & Evan
