Eldridge Smerin

This is the work of London architects and designers Eldridge Smerin. The first is a 3 storey extension to a Victorian building with narrow planes of glass allowing light and views. Look closely at the staircase - individually laminated sheets of timber gently curving to form the stair. And the last images reveal their mastery of the juxtaposition of mass and void, nature and modernism. Breathtaking spaces.

I ditto the curved wooden wall of the stairway. Yowza. And the photo under it, outside dusk with the light on inside, looks so welcoming and homey (despite all the chilly glass works). ::sigh::
