This is pure eye candy for us. The sight of other people making cooler spaces than their neighbors out of less always puts a smile on our face. In this case, this West London house was built within the space of an old single-storey wine vault that served the adjacent pub. The front is 3m wide and 8m high... Perhaps the most interesting thing about this house is how light and airy the architects, Boyarsky Murphy, were able to make it by stripping out detail and glassing as many walls as possible. While the Victorians to either side are extremely enclosed and bricked in to head off the elements, the modern architect can insulate extremely well with glass and get the benefit of some solar heat influx as well. The only thing we want to know is how much did it cost? (Story is at BDOnline.com) (Via Treeghugger)
