Emil Eve Architects

Blurton Road

Reimagining of a Victorian terrace house to create an open, light-filled home with double-height library and a palette of warm materials which draws on the homeowners love of mid-century design.

Designed for a young creative couple with small children, the brief for Blurton Road was to move away from the original Victorian proportions to deliver a sense of generosity, with places to relax, play and socialise all around the house.

The creation of a double-height ‘library’ at the centre of the house was a key design move, reorientating the interior and creating visual connections across the living spaces on two floors. A new staircase made from white powder coated steel with fumed oak treads leads up from the kitchen to a mezzanine with a glazed screen wall on to the living room. Full height oak shelving pulls both levels together into one harmonious space. The stairs are considered part of the room, their shallow pitch and wide treads perfect for sitting on.
