25 Tanners Hill in London

Design: Dow Jones Architects

Home and Gallery in Lewisham

Location: Lewisham, London SE8

This beautifully executed project, in which a humble bicycle workshop has been transformed, as if by alchemy, to create a home and gallery with a richly layered collection of spaces. The architecture is made as much by what is stripped away and revealed as by the elements that are added.

The relationship between exposed plaster, timber walls and a new winder staircase are handled with restraint and confidence. Interior spaces open onto one another with fluidity and the experience is one of space continually unfolding.

Empathy with the Grade II listed structure is evident throughout. The decision to leave uneven timber floors to allow the character and history of the structure to be revealed demonstrates empathy towards the existing building and shrewd budget management.
