    Default 5-Story London Townhouse

    Modern Glass Extension on a 5-Story London Townhouse

    When an interior designer and a media company CEO bought and moved into this 5-story, 6-bedroom townhouse in 2011, it became clear that the once-neglected 1870 London home hadn’t been updated since the early 80s. Giles Pike Architects were brought in the following year to completely refurbish all five floors of the Kempson Road house, including adding on an impressive double-height glass extension on the back.

    I like a lot of this, not all. Nice how the dogs face is out of focus so we won't recognize him.

    Does anyone use curtains or blinds anymore? You can see everything those people do.

    Probably his stipulation so that no one would know that he lives in a house with a foosball table in the living room.

    The kitchen floor tile is hideous.

    It's an interesting space, but I hate the way they've furnished and decorated it. The kitchen tile is awful.
