Modern Mews by Coffey Architects, Paddington
To make the most of space and light, Coffey Architects employed techniques that are commonly used in Japanese houses and tea rooms when designing this three-metre-wide mews house.
“The home is conceived as a life-sized piece of joinery,” said studio founder Phil Coffey. “A Japanese treasure chest for living that sits between the white-painted brick finish walls of the adjacent mews neighbours.”
