Best Residential & Public Architecture Firm - England & Best Completed Townhouse Extension & Refurbishment (London): Cornerstone House

Cornerstone House is a refined renovation and modern rear extension of an Edwardian townhouse. The home’s kitchen, living and dining spaces have been relocated to the basement by carefully carving away the structure of the house. Reinterpreting typical domestic spaces of the Edwardian townhouse typology, the new layout is a mix of open and broken plan design with double-height ceilings and windows, and a newly cut-out mezzanine that allows light to enter.
