Clock House

Posted on Thu, 23 Mar 2017 by KiM

A sad and sorry 1960s mid-terrace building in Finsbury Park, London has had new life breathed into it by architectural studio Archmongers. By knocking through the internal walls and creating a glass and timber extension the ground floor layout is more connected and so much brighter. I love the use of glass bricks, terrazzo, tiles, rubber and plywood, even the quirky “brain-coloured” tile and clock on the facade. Tired and dated is now energetic and creative.

"brain-coloured" tiles LOL!
Those stairs look like an MIT physics final project- they look like they 'do' something and are not just stationary! The courtyard is just my size, love it.

Every time I see this house posted on a blog I love it… and then chuckle to myself that the next door neighbour with the lush creeping garden is Jeremy Corbyn. I don't know why that amuses me so much.
