Details: Architect Tamir Addadi was asked to convert the loft of a private house in London into a bedroom with a study, which was to include a large bookcase, while keeping to a very tight budget.
Says Addadi, “As the conversion required the creation of a new staircase to the loft, we designed a combined solution that incorporated the staircase and bookcase into a single element.”
“A major challenge was the size of the first floor landing, which was only 160cm wide; we aimed to achieve a sense of lightness in this space, despite the introduction of such a large element.”
“Our solution was to design a new south-facing skylight for the loft, which, combined with the airy structure of the stair-bookcase, enabled natural light to penetrate into the formerly dark spaces of the ground and first floors at the core of the house.”
