Finkernagel Ross Architects has been designed a new house with something which never done before and it will never do again. Sheldon Avenue is a 2019 project located in Highgate, London, United Kingdom. It comes with a sculptural, floating, ‘helical’ steel staircase which is the point of a truly bespoke element. This staircase is only designed for this house and for these clients.
It can be tricky when a house owner wants to fix his or her own house when it is not working as a living place. A house is a combination of things. In this project, the house spaces don’t quite flow, there is a dark basement, and there is also only a little connection between inside and out. This project also becomes a fresh start and the opportunity of a lifetime for the owners as a major financial and emotional investment.
There many things that can be done to this new house. The light can flood into every corner of the house room, a sloping garden also can be given with a sense of excitement and drama through changing levels, and the heart of the house can be opened with a triple-space atrium. The thoughtfully designed interiors and lighting is combined with the flowing, harmonious spaces to transform this house from old into the new one.
The architect goes one step further with this kind of stunning home. In order to make people amaze when they step through the door, the architect comes up with something awesome: a sculptural, floating, ‘helical’ steel staircase. This staircase is the point of a truly bespoke element, conceived and built just for this space and these clients.
It is a project with a substantial budget. The architect feels grateful that the clients trust in the design team very much. They said that their home now is everything they wanted and more. The architect has shown what an architect can do to this house, including its interior design, architectural design, and garden design.
