Built on the long, narrow site of a formed garage, this West London house is bright and light thanks to a series of courtyards and roof lights dictated by existing high boundary walls. The simple yet stylish interiors use a palette of white walls, oak floors, black framed windows and doors and cedar battens.

The Amoroso Residence by Venice Beach based multidisciplinary design and architecture studio Electric Bowery took its inspiration from mid-century Scandinavian design and gave it a modern twist. A monochromatic palette anchored by concrete floors is warmed by light woods and natural fibres. Climb the simple modern stairs right to the top and what do you find? A roof top terrace perfect for entertaining in the Californian climate.
