Property A Victorian terraced house spread over three floors in Dulwich, south London, with 10 rooms, including 5 bedrooms, kitchen and dining area, living room, reception room, and 2 bathrooms.

The leather chair was a find at a Chiswick auction house. It originally came from a bank in Belgium.

The ground floor was designed to create a continuous space from the living room, through to the dining area and kitchen, and out of the folding floor-to-ceiling aluminium doors into the back garden. The kitchen itself is the closest to the original minimal designs for the house, with lots of storage.

The cabinet carcasses were from IKEA (opens in new tab), then laminated with Formica. For a similar mixer tap, see the range at Bulthaup (opens in new tab)
