Primrose Hill in North London is a neighborhood known for its clusters of modestly scaled artists' studios; one such house, built around 1873 for Frederick Barnard, an illustrator of Charles Dickens' books, was recently overhauled by London firm Sevil Peach . The client, a photographer, saw the potential despite the fact that the property had been divided into a series of "small, awkward, stuffy spaces," say the architects. "Our main goal was to transform the property back to its former glory." Above: The designers uncovered the original oak beams and restored the sash windows, which flood the studio with light. Above L: A worktable. Above R: Evidence that an artist is in residence. Above: Sevile Peach kept the palette calm and serene with classic Scandinavian furniture, including a Poet Sofa by Finn Juhl.
