Lagom Hus is a project designed by Bradley Van Der Straeten. The main design concept for the project came from the practical need for storage. The solution was initially derived as two joinery ‘edges’ that ran along the ground floor external walls – one pushing towards the front of the property into the living room and the other pushing out from the kitchen into the rear garden.

This project designed by Bradley Van Der Straeten takes its name from the two new large vaulted roof windows that flood the dining space with natural light. The distinctive sloping, plywood sides to the vaults open out the view to make the space feel spacious and dynamic. The plywood theme is continued on one wall face, with fitted storage and with a long bespoke dining bench where the owners can sit and admire the view. photography by French + Tye.

This Hoxton terrace house received a colourful, full interior refurbishment by Bradley Van Der Straeten. For a client who is a Barbican enthusiast, the palette was able to be strong and eclectic.
