SHH contemporary-family-room


Complete remodeling and extension of prominent 2,500 sq ft detached brick/stucco fronted 2,500sqft property in north London. Occupied by the same family for 3 generations, the property had been loosely arranged as three separate apartments. SHH completely altered the building’s interior to create a highly contemporary living space with no internal corridors.

Kit Pollard added this to Check Out That View
I love how this big window extends the room, making the outside feel like a part of the whole space. Plus, between the window and skylights, the room is absolutely bathed in natural light.
Neiman Taber Architects added this to Living Well in Rainy Seattle
Oversized doors and operable walls can create seamless transitions from the living spaces to the decks and into the landscape beyond.
The natural flow between the inside and the outside is fabulous.
