Clever design tricks were used to create a bright, welcoming interior, from the loft to the basement, in this expertly redesigned family property.

We spoke to the owners and their architect, Alex Tart, and interior designer Marilyn Johnson about how they ensured this did not happen when they redesigned this family home in south London.
