Gluckman Smith was honored to trundle down to Somerset to present ‘The Garden Room’ to Hauser & Wirth.

Renovation and reorganisation of a 19th century Kensington Mews house was completed in October. Working in a tight site with a small footprint, the internal volume of the house was rearranged to maximize floor area and natural light. Through a tactical rearrangment of floor levels, a basement storey was inserted which enjoys street frontage and external views. Careful room organisation and material choice, such as limed oak flooring, have given the mews house a new sense of space and brightness.
