London-based architectural practice, Platform 5 Architects, has designed the Book Tower House project. Completed in 2013, the award-winning home project is located in London, England.

The contemporary home is a typical late Victorian mid-terraced house in the Hampstead area of London.

According to the architects: “The original property contained some arts and crafts influenced decorative aspects, which the owners were keen to retain and highlight, while introducing contemporary interventions.

“The main feature of the property is a double height library space at the heart of the house, created by combining the original rear reception room and a first floor bedroom. The feature staircase, wrapped in oak bookshelves, leads up to a built-in desk and study area with views over the ground floor.

“To the rear of the contemporary house, a side extension to the existing kitchen was formed by resting an oak rib and skin structure, externally clad in zinc, onto the brick party wall. A cosy seating area with slide-away corner glazing creates a space where you feel surrounded by the garden.”
