This east Lon­don stu­dio is the one to com­mis­sion if you want to build a house on a small, ur­ban plot, or to ex­tend your home. For Hairy House, an ex­ten­sion to an end-of-ter­race Vic­to­rian prop­erty in west Lon­don, the firm play­fully cre­ated an an­gu­lar struc­ture to form a new in­door/out­door space, while mask­ing the build­ing with a wild grass meadow roof that re­sem­bles a fine head of hair ( hence its name). More re­cently, the prac­tice com­pleted Whole House (pic­tured), sited on an old garage plot in south Lon­don. Its two storeys are or­gan­ised around a cen­tral glass-walled court­yard, al­low­ing light into both lev­els, with built-in stor­age keep­ing the in­te­rior look­ing as min­i­mal­ist as the build. hay­hur­stand.co.uk ➤
