A grade II listed house in Islington was extended and refurbished to create a home with generous spaces for family life.
The Lower ground floor has been opened up and replaced with a large kitchen with Alpi 4.0 honed stone tops, splash backs and sinks by Grassi Pietre.
Alpi 4.0 agglomerate was also used on the benches in the rear extension and in the terrace, in bush-hammered finish, to create curved oversized steps following the sun’s path throughout the afternoon.
Bathroom floors, cladding and basins have been created following the notion of carved-out spaces. The rich textures of Grigio Alpi in honed and brushed finishes together with Tadelakt walls create cave-like monastic rooms dedicated to the daily rituals of ablution.
