Morton Mews, Earl’s Court by Neil Tomlinson Architects

November 2, 2015

Morton Mews, Earl’s Court - The conversion of a 200 square metre Victorian house for a private developer.  The challenge was to design a spacious and well-lit home out of a dark and cramped sequence of rooms.

Neil Tomlinson Architects did this by opening up the rooms of this three storey terraced mews house and by then placing them around a top lit stair.  The stair forms the key narrative around otherwise neutral spaces.

Its distinct design lets light through the steps. It is all about creating a generous and even glamorous feel.  In this way, the stair regains a perhaps historical purpose of emphasis in the overall design of the home.

The architects also made room for a new basement and, through the design of the staircase as well as additional light-wells, were able to successfully connect this underground space to the rest of the house.
