Herringbone House, Atelier ChanChan's inaugural architecture project, takes its name from the distinctive brickwork that covers the façade of this East London hideaway
The dilapidated state of the pre-existing site presented the architect with a golden opportunity to convert a tight, angular floor plan into a spacious, light-filled home
The pale, streamlined timber flooring complements the minimalist interior, reflecting light across all areas, which fosters a harmonious balance within the space
The exterior brickwork is loosely echoed inside by the stark white tiling in the kitchen
A white metal staircase, which seems to float on air, leads to the upper floor of the house
Herringbone House is not only Atelier ChanChan's inaugural project but also its founder's private home. Each room is as comfortable as it is stylish
A small, bright atrium connects the three bedrooms and a master bathroom
Large windows throughout the house flood rooms with light, banishing any notions of a cramped, urban existence
Throughout the house the colour pallette is a mix of soft browns, nude and light tones, reflective of Chan's love of Scandinavian architecture and design
Large retractable glass doors, designed and manufactured by Atelier ChanChan, are positioned at either end of the lower level...
... allowing for the open-plan lounge and kitchen to extend further into the courtyard and, says Chan, 'bringing in natural light and air'
