NESTLED IN…

a conservation area in the heart of London, lies the Lambeth Marsh House – a modest two story row home, originally developed by John Palmer Roupell in the 1820s for the purpose of housing local artisans. The charmingly modest structure had stood unoccupied for over a decade when Fraher Architects arrived on scene with a brief to breathe new life into its historical interiors.

THE REVAMP…

centered around both renovation and restoration – beginning with plans for a glass roofed extension designed to open up and increase interior space from 120 square meters to 260 square meters.

AS FOR THE RESTORATION…

and interior outfitting aspects of the project, these were a collaboration between Fraher Architects and their in-house joinery partner, Shape London. Resulting highlights range from restored 19th century fireplaces and wood paneling to contemporary built-in shelving and cabinetry.

TODAY…

the Lambeth Marsh House stands as a fantastic example of history born anew through architecture and design – a fresh yet sensitive balance between historical preservation and the changing aesthetic and spacial demands of contemporary life.
