Private residential, The boat and the pavilion
Richmond, United Kingdom
The building is a typical terraced house of the ‘900 in Richmond, a residential neighbourhood in west London. The customer, a family of sailors, asked “Unagru Architecture Study” to design the extension and refurbishment of the ground floor on a more direct relationship with the garden. The project was conceived with the idea of designing a boat, and refer to a nautical environment.
For the project, they used concave and convex spatial elements, combining them to alternate compression and expansion of space, it was also included a fragment of a boat in the historic building: a curved wall that runs through the plant in length, in which Linvisibile Alba Curved Hinged door was included. The extension of the building is covered with a pavilion roof, like an overturned boat that lets in light from the south. The white walls, the teak wooden floor and a rope railing still emphasize the nautical reference characteristic of this project.
