This beautiful and modern seasonal getaway, Summerhouse, by Ullmayersylvester architects. is located in the Stoke Newington district of London.

This small gem of a structure, with it’s simple geometry reinforced with clean details and raw materials, is given interest with a small kink in it’s rectangular form.

The home appears to levitate off the ground giving an air of lightness to how it engages the site. It’s as if it was gently placed there, careful not to disturb anything.

The mirrored glass (though somewhat dated) blends the home beautifully into the environment and gives the facade an ephemeral quality – allowing it to change with the passing of the day and the seasons.

    A great talent for linear design. That would make a terrific art studio for me. I want to ask where they found those original butterfly chairs. I have two from my mother. I cannot find the covers for them. All I find are the smaller knock-offs. I could use some help there.

    Thanks so much!
    I love this site!

    Michele,
    I am glad you are enjoying the site. It would make a great creative getaway. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for those chair covers and let you know if we run across them. Thanks!
