Modern home in London

December 20, 2015

Macdonald Wright Architects Modern Home LondonThis bright and modern home at Parkholme Road is a home to architect James Macdonald Wright and his family. The Edwardian beauty from 1893 was renovated with a respect for the environment. A goal was to preserve the building’s historical integrity while achieving the high levels of energy reduction by using solar energy. All the materials were sourced locally, from the recycled copper cladding from Hackney Wick, coppiced chestnut fencing from Sussex to slate roof tiles from Wales.

Besides energy, another quest for Macdonald Wright Architects was a spacious living area. It’s created by incorporating terrace, kitchen, dining space and living area on the ground floor. On the first floor are nestled library, bathroom, and the children’s rooms. The top floor became a space for the main bedroom with bathroom, office, and walk-in-closet. The contemporary living room with the staircase is definitely a prime feature of the house that combines the old with the new. It also became a display for the architect’s beautiful collection of ceramics.
