Architects rarely get the chance to design a house exactly the way they want. That’s because each of their clients is different and wants something special which doesn’t necessarily coincide with the architects’ style or ideas. So what happens when architects do get the opportunity to design their own projects and houses? Perhaps we can understand this by having a closer look at the Scenario House, a residence by Scenario Architects.

The house occupies a plot between two other residences with similar facades

Although the initial intention was to completely renovate the house, the exterior remained faithful to its history

Folding glass doors can open the interior to the outdoors and let air and light in

Scenario is a multidisciplinary practice which offers architectural, structural and interior design services and which developes every project using advanced BIM technology through accurate 3D models. The same strategy was applied here but this time the architects were able to be their own clients and to practice what they usually preach to their clients.

The architects took advantage of the various height differences and created a cozy lounge on the mezzanine level

The house is located in London and has a total floor space of 202 square meters. The architects purchased it with the intention of giving it a complete remodel and to also expand it. At the same time, they wanted to give it a makeover in order to make it suitable for family living. The transformation was completed in 2016.

No space was wasted and this includes the corners and window sills

There was this area just under the staircase which had a lower ceiling, perfect for a playground

The upper floor has skylights and angled ceiling walls

The house initially had a basement which the architects wanted to connect to the front part of the house. The two spaces had to communicate and to become one, both visually and structurally. The result was an open area which contains the kitchen, dining area and living space.

The social area opens onto the garden and the two zones are connected by an angled glazed roof extension. Glass doors welcome the outdoors in and make the transition smoother and more natural.

The children’s room is on the upper level and has a pitched ceiling and bunk beds

No space was wasted, and lots of fun features were created. For example, there’s this cozy window nook which could be created thanks to the fact that the house has bay windows. Also, there’s a play area for the kids and plenty of storage under the stairs along with a pull-out table and bench.

The en-suite bathroom is very elegant, featuring a combination of white and wenge

The children’s bedroom is pretty fun too. It has a climbing wall which leads up to a secret space. To get down, the kids use a fireman pole.
