Armadale House 2 by Mitsouri Architects
A modest Victorian-style house known as the Armadale House 2 has received a complete makeover by Mitsouri Architects. With 2,690 square feet of living space, the renovated home features a new addition as well as a stunning garden. The upper floor is where the private spaces are contained, including a terrace and a luxurious master suite which overlook the garden through a fine timber screen.
On the ground floor, an open plan living room with polished concrete floors, white walls and floor-to-ceiling timber and glass elements opens up to the garden.
From the architects: “This refurbishment and extension to an existing Victorian style house in Armadale focused on the creation of a discreet new addition to make the most of a compact site.
We proposed a 2 storey building form with a compact footprint to retain as much of the rear garden as possible. The upper floor houses a master suite and terrace designed as fully private spaces with controlled views of the rear garden through a fine timber screen. The first floor is set back to create a recessive building element when viewed from the rear garden and neighbouring property.
An open plan living room at ground floor features polished concrete floors, warm white walls, refined timber joinery elements and floor to ceiling glazing. A clean, natural palette of materials is used to bring texture and warmth to the space whilst still allowing the clients to personalise it as they wish. Natural timber elements, dark zinc standing seam cladding and bespoke window joinery give the building a crafted and enduring architectural quality.”
