Vicco's Tower, London | 51% Studios

Vicco's Tower is a rear garden extension of a traditional small Hackney house to give a new stacked kitchen, study and master bathroom in that order for a Norwegian artist living in London. You cannot help being mesmerised by the artist's own touches so a modest project becomes one of singular aesthetic consistency.
The extension addresses the back garden with an area of nearly 100% glazing in the lower ground kitchen such that is feels almost like one was cooking out of doors. Above this is suspended a two storey solid wood tower containing the more private study, entirely lined with birch plywood followed by a large bathroom which has an entire glass roof and brilliant light.
