Sevil Peach Studio in Primrose Hill


Sevil Peach Studio in Primrose Hill

February 8, 2016

Primrose Hill in North London is a neighborhood known for its clusters of modestly scaled artists’ studios; one such house, built around 1873 for Frederick Barnard, an illustrator of Charles Dickens’ books, was recently overhauled by London firm Sevil Peach. The client, a photographer, saw the potential despite the fact that the property had been divided into a series of “small, awkward, stuffy spaces,” say the architects. “Our main goal was to transform the property back to its former glory.”
