Threefold Architects


  • A house with many terraces

Threefold Architects have created a luminous family home for a graphic designer and textiles specialist, though the extension and refurbishment of a dilapidated 1950’s Mews House in Camden.

Although situated in a dense urban mews, the house has been designed to both channel natural light into the centre of the building and to optimise the connection between the interior and exterior rooms that have been created, breaking down the visual and physical barriers between inside and outside space.

The project features a central open tread staircase, which travels up through the core of the house and is illuminated by large glazed panels on every floor. Bedrooms, bathrooms and the utility room are located on the ground floor and have access to the secluded courtyard garden at the rear of the property. The first floor comprises a large open plan dual aspect space for the kitchen, dining and living which flows into a large west facing roof terrace at the rear. The new roof extension creates a second floor containing two additional flexible spaces that are currently utilised as a spare bedroom and home studio, which opens onto terraces at the front and back of the house and have views over Camden Square and the City of London.
