The kids outnumber the adults in this boisterious & well loved home.
The house is south facing, so the voluptuous voids were the only method of bringing light into the living spaces. This exercise in finding light in urban spaces has become an integral part of Custom Mad's practice.
The balance between clean lines in the home to reduce kid-related-chaos, whilst still having warmth and character was an integral part of the brief.
Highlighting the heritage details on the façade and stained glass windows, as well as using recycled bricks from the site at the rear of the property was important to our studios sustainability ethos, as well as highlighting the beauty of history.
Details scattered throughout the house are a homage to craftsmanship - like the curved hand rail which was made by carefully slicing thin layers of blackbutt timber and curving each piece around a jig.
