From the outside, this Victorian house looks like all the others on its quiet street in west London. But, inside, the space is larger and sunnier than one would ever imagine, thanks to the vision of the owners and their architect.
Walls, floors and even ceilings have been replaced in glass, and a double-height space created in the heart of the house, without compromising the traditional origins of the building.
1/9 Living room
2/9 Living room
The more formal end of the living room centres on a fireplace made by a local stone supplier.

The table and chairs are all Hulsta.
5/9 Basement dining room
The Oragami dining table, benches and transparent-back armchair are all Roche Bobois.

7/9 En-suite bathroom
Glass and mirrors keep the bathroom light despite the rich wood and marble. It features limestone floor tiles - stylish and practical, as they're easy to maintain.
The small garden has been cleverly designed to make full use of the space available. Tiled steps lead up from the lower ground level to a hot tub, and then up again to a paved terrace with olive trees, lavender bushes and dark purple and black grasses.
For a hot tub like this one, visit Riviera Hot Tubs.
9/9 Roof terrace
These sun loungers are from Gloster.
