Last week I received a press release from Andy Martin Architects announcing the completion of their newest project, Mews 02. I love conversion stories, this home was converted from a existing mechanic garage into a four story family home. I really like the formality of the black and white color pallet. One element that I noticed which I really love is when an exterior wall extends into the interior (pic 8). The stair cases are “simply” stunning.

Mews 02 is a single residence set in Belsize Park; the owners, a musician and his designer wife, wanted this existing mechanics garage to be converted to a 4 level family home, with the emphasis on the entertaining areas and with the ability to create private compartments over for sleeping.

On first impression, as one passes through the entry gates, the sunken courtyard resembles a slate quarry with its charcoal blocks running externally and reaching internally to the rear of the residence. Immediately is possible to feel the playful use of dark and light, of black and white.

An important aspect of this project is the way ama have managed to capture the available light creatively, using glazed and wooden screens, and even natural vegetation screens giving all the space unique atmosphere throughout the day and night.
