Appreciation towards Andy Martin Architecture for providing the following description:


the transparent paving material is innovatively used in interior area.

这个室内设计的项目是由客户提出的,他们希望将撒丁岛的光线和开放的感受带到伦敦市中心。于是设计师彻底清除了 Belgravia 区的这个 5 层格鲁吉亚风格建筑的所有室内结构,将上下层全部打通。设计师重新规划了空间,用透明的手法联系了各个楼层,材料、质感,光影和激情创造出兴奋而宁静的家庭环境。

The perf house design was driven by clients who wanted to bring some of the light and openness of their native Sardinia to central London. The scope involved the complete removal of all existing internal elements of this generic Georgian 5-storey terrace house in Belgravia, leaving a vast 6 sided internal volume. ama then re-imagined the spaces within to deliver a new home environment with transparency and connection, materiality and texture, light and shadow, excitement and tranquility.

▼ 经由楼梯进入地下一层,the stairs lead to the basement


A restrained palette of industrial materials – raw concrete and blackened steel, combine with refined glass, timber and carefully detailed plasterwork to create a relaxed but crisp interior. To solve the issue of a dark and unwelcoming basement level so common in this building type, we have introduced a ground floor made up entirely of footpath paving lights, common on every London commercial street – repurposed here to allow natural light and activity to connect the first two levels of the building.

▼ 餐厅,dining area

▼ 大面积的采光,the skylight and the franch window bring lights to the basement

▼ 厨房,kitchen

▼ 透明的楼板连接了上下层的空间,增加了地下室的照明,the transparent material allow natural light to connect the first two levels


▼ 由楼梯回到首层,stairs lead back to the ground floor


Starting at basement level a handmade steel staircase connects to the ground floor and then works its way up to the first floor, at which point the solid steel plates transform into a perforated metal spine which cuts right through the building to the top floor. The stair from first floor to the top have been realised as a continuous timber sculpture, again completely handmade and finely detailed.
