London Fields


Oh how we love the simplicity, geometry and minimalism that’s often brought forward in contemporary design. Too often perhaps?

Scenario Architecture took a stand against the standard definition of contemporary architecture. Enter organic shapes, get rid of parallel lines and mix different types of wood: not to protest against contemporary design, but potentially be ahead of the curve (so to speak), introducing the new look of contemporary design, similar, but different.

While maintaining the classic designer modernism of wood and pure white, the designers have rounded the stairwell and banisters that flow between two levels into what feels like a singular flowing form.

The real genius of this design, however, is the lowered ceiling that allows a dual aspect glass window out on to the garden above. A clever way to improve the relationship between inside and outside whilst at the same time creating a substantial light well. A unison of form and function. Brilliant.
