House Call: Converted Stable in London

Julie Carlson September 26, 2011

What is it about converted stables, carriage houses, even garages? Whenever we're wandering around London, Brooklyn, or San Francisco (any city, really), we find ourselves drawn to the more humble houses in the neighborhood. Case in point: this residence in London spotted on the Modern House Estate Agents, located on a cobbled mews off Tavistock Terrace. The building was part of a late 19th century stable block, and was used as a motor repair workshop from the 1920s until the 1970s; in 2006, the property was converted into a house by the development company Kube. The designers neatly solved the interior illumination issue with cleverly placed operable skylights, which allow natural light to flood the interiors and provide ventilation. To see more, go to the Modern House Estate Agents.
