cottage-scandinavian-living-room

All & Nxthing is responsible for the complete overhaul of this 1890’s Victorian cottage, located in De Beauvoir Town, London, England, United Kingdom. The scope of this project entailed taking a dilapidated old cottage and transforming it into a bright and airy new layout which included an extension. A passion project for the designer/homeowner, who re-designed this for himself, his wife — and two cats!

Every inch of this red brick cottage was transformed, utilizing its beautiful original bones, while adding to its character. Highlights include the double height bathroom with exposed brick and bateau tub and the extended open plan kitchen with exposed beams, concrete floors, log burner and our bespoke kitchen design incorporating Terrazzo and reclaimed parquet worktops. There are a total of three bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms in this home.

Above: When the homeowner’s bought this home, it did not have a bathroom! They had to use a portion of another room to create this bathroom space. The ceiling was vaulted, while steel bars were added to support the chimney above. A skylight was also added to flood the space with natural light.

Although this bathroom was small, they also wanted a separate shower space. It was turned into a watertight wet room. There is a glass screen to shield the toilet from water, while all the materials are water-resistant.
