_CUT THRU HOUSE NW8   London, United Kingdom Private Residence | 200 sq m Completed 2018  ID by Studio Milo  This semi-detached house is located in an exclusive residential lane in St. John's Wood, London. Our approach for this intervention relocated the original, central staircase dividing the house’s layout, replacing it with an elongated, two-flight staircase re-organising layouts at all levels and opening all areas. The resulting triple-height, elongated 'slit' space becomes the main distribution area of the house, exposing newly open, contemporary interiors and capturing abundant natural light whilst carefully forming sculpted internal openings. These new rooflights, clear glass floors and screens in frameless glass deliver stunning visual and physical connections throughout the house. The main staircase is flanked by full height storage walls and sculpted window reveals, integrating existing windows and rooflights at all levels. The ground floor level is lowered to allow for more generous heights in an open space layout, improving flexibility in this welcoming family home environment.
