A former garage, squeezed into the corner of a residential street, has been transformed into a 3,500 sq ft, eight-bedroom house, with two fairy-tale towers rising from the ground floor.
Function may have driven the design process, but the resulting building is curvy, playful and resolutely forward-looking. Modernity has been mixed with whimsical touches to brilliant – and slightly bonkers – effect.
There are curved walls, round windows, a slide running alongside the main staircase and a fireman’s pole from the first floor to the kitchen. There’s also a stunning kinetic sculpture by the artist Daniel Chadwick above the swimming pool, visible as soon as you enter the house.
The bedroom towers have circular windows that frame views of the lushly planted rooftop below and also feature slim rectangular windows resembling the arrow slits of medieval forts. But the towers are no mere creative folly.
While most of us would find the prospect of furnishing a room without any right angles challenging, Michaelis has managed to make the master suite look enviably spacious.
