HIDDEN OF LONDON - EDITION29 HOUSED 003 for iPad
In EDITION29 HOUSED 003 for iPad, REAR HOUSE is an exposed steel with insulated glass curtain enclosure as an extension to a Victorian Semi-detached terraced house in North London by architect Luigi Montefusco, takes an old structure and adds an elegant modern addition in the rear thus bridging the needs to conserve older buildings and the reality of modern life.
For this Issue on Modern London dwellings, the story of the Hidden London came to the forefront. Most of the modern residential designs that are being brought to life in the city are additions to Victorian homes that have long existed in the city. The rarity of raw land to build on, have architects finding leftover spaces between existing buildings that overshadow the new developments, thus many of the amazing modern residential structures being built are hidden from plain view, with their dislocation from the main roads. With additions in the back yards of older buildings, they turn their modernity inward thus hiding from plain view.
