Soho Terrace by PATALAB Architecture

April 29, 2016

Located in the heart of Soho, this Georgian building forms part of a well ordered terrace with clusters of small shops at street level. First through to third floors had been used as offices for many years; the exterior was in desperate need of refurbishment and all original features and character had been ripped from the interior.

The age of the building and roughness of the area inspired the choice of a rustic timber floor and is contrasted with crisp tiling and simple joinery.

The design combines the reintroduction of character features alongside distinctly contemporary interventions. A large mirror in the narrow entrance hall enlarges the perceived space.

On the first floor a matt black kitchen has been designed to appear like a furniture item – a simple oak shelf in place of high level cupboards, a concealed hob extract and a matt textured splash back color matched to the walls all serve to form a calm backdrop to the living room. Further increasing the connectivity between the spaces, a full height corner door enlarges the living area and draws the paneled staircase into the room.

There is a real sense of generosity to the room proportions.

The two upper floors accommodate each a large bedroom and en suite.

The low ceiling height within the third floor bedroom has been increased dramatically by incorporating the roof space and forming a vaulted ceiling.

Integrated concealed lighting enhances the perceived floor to ceiling height.

The monochrome color palette of the bathrooms contrasts the rich flooring of the bedrooms.
