“Glazed doors open to a private and secluded rear courtyard”

Superbly designed by Woodrow Vizor Architects, this three-bedroom, split-level apartment in Parson’s Green is beautifully lit by its broad, former shopfront windows. This striking renovation has placed an emphasis on tactile materiality expressed through Buster and Punch fixtures and fittings, concrete worktops and wooden floors. The result is an airy yet grounded series of polished living spaces. St Olaf’s Road is a short walk to the River Thames and the wonderful cafés and shops of Fulham Road.

The Tour

Standing on the corner of two quiet residential streets, the apartment is brightened by converted shopfront windows that testify to its early history. More recent additions of carefully placed skylights and bifold doors further contribute to its light feel. The entrance is set back from the street by a front courtyard lined with planters.

Entry is directly to the open-plan living spaces. The design has carefully controlled the zoning of space to establish a distinct entryway with plenty of bespoke storage. To the left is a welcoming living room with glazed doors that can separate the space from the kitchen while allowing light to permeate through.

In the kitchen, smooth concrete worktops complement micro-cement underfoot, while refined brass detailing adds a certain elegance. Generous grey-painted cabinetry houses integrated appliances. A utility room is positioned off the kitchen and has plenty of storage.

The three bedrooms sit around a central courtyard on the lower-ground floor. The main bedroom is a large and welcoming space with a broad skylight cutting across the ceiling. A bank of built-in wardrobes are finished with lively lilac doors by Superfront. There is another double bedroom with an en suite shower room, while the third is a large single that would equally make for a brilliant home office. All of the rooms can be opened to the courtyard, creating a natural extension of the internal footprint.

The family bathroom sits next to the main bedroom. Both this bathroom and the main bedroom’s en suite are opulently finished, pairing glazed green subway tiles with matt black fixtures. The family bathroom has a large bathtub and separate walk-in shower.

Outdoor Space

The courtyard on the lower-ground floor is a sheltered spot with space for a table and chairs.

The house is within a short walk of the many shops, bars, restaurants and cafés of Fulham and Parsons Green.
