Upside-down House

Behind an unassuming facade, the traditional terraced house is inverted to create daylight-flooded living space on the upper floors, with bedrooms below.

An open staircase connects the kitchen/dining-room with the upstairs living-room which in turn opens onto a rear roof terrace, providing three generous interconnected living spaces. The glazing between levels allows views from front to back further accentuating the lofty feeling of the house.
