Dans le centre de Londres, l'agence Nex Architecture et l'architecte Alan Dempsey ont réaménagé cet appartement en duplex. Usant de divers panneaux et cloisons mobiles, ils offrent un espace modulable selon les besoins et les moments de la journée. Au coeur de l'appartement, un escalier relie les deux niveaux et s'habille d'une spectaculaire balustrade toute hauteur faite de pièces de bois au profil courbe.

Sur ce projet, Nex Architecture précise:

"Cloth House involved the complete refurbishment of a duplex apartment in central London. The design of the project took advantage of the unusual constraint of the bedrooms being located on the lower entrance level and turned it into an opportunity to open up the entire space while still complying with building regulations.

The main interventions consist of a series of fabric covered walls that define different programme areas. On the lower level they take the form of large sliding walls that can be closed at night to define private bedrooms, while during the day they are retracted to offer users the full benefit of the available light and space. On the upper level the freestanding cloth walls define and partially enclose the kitchen, hiding it from view of the main living area.

The stair is used as a central feature in the house and a new timber lattice balustrade is draped over the existing stairs. It extends through the upper floor to visually connect the two levels. CNC machined from birch ply, the individual vertical rails deform over their length to maximise the space that can be occupied on each side at differing heights."
