PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH AIRBNB
Designed by dePaor in 2016 and listed on Airbnb, this contemporary home features a series of interconnecting internal and external spaces, hidden behind a 1930s terrace in Harold’s Cross.
This end of terrace property counterpoints the compact solidity of the existing building with a timber-framed structure that establishes an open and expansive network of interconnecting spaces. The impression of a series of interconnecting internal and external spaces is to a great extent formed by the repetitive structural frame, which allows an open spatial character.
Five floor-to-ceiling, factory-made trusses span the space, providing the primary structure, with vertical posts interspersing the space.
