Mirror House by Matheson Whiteley
Mirror House is a minimal home located in London, United Kingdom, designed by Matheson Whiteley. The original artists who occupied the site for the last ten years, have elected to remain in the area and redevelop their existing building in order to create three new apartments over three floors. Access is arranged around a common stair adjacent to a small light court that provides daylight to the rear of the site. The apartments share common cores and service risers, but individual layouts vary according to the needs of each owner. The facade of the original one-storey structure is mirrored vertically. This defines the overall volume of the new building, creating the appearance of a two-storey structure while continuing the scale of the original streetscape.
