Stripped-back surfaces appear throughout Hackney apartment by Merrett Houmøller Architects

Exposed concrete walls and a set of "hit-and-miss" stairs add character to this formerly lacklustre apartment in east London, which has been overhauled by Merrett Houmøller Architects.
Set inside a housing complex that was built in the early 2000s, the Hackney apartment was previously host to a series of cramped, light-starved rooms as a result of 45 degree-angle walls.
Locally-based practice Merrett Houmøller Architects was tasked with transforming its "awkwardly-shaped and uninspired" interiors.

"Stripping the walls and ceiling back to the shell was essential for adding character that never made it into the original new build," explained the practice, which works out of offices in London and Sheffield.
"It also allowed us to reclaim depth and height previously hidden for no real reason."
Non-structural walls have been straightened to allow natural light to better flow through the apartment.
Any existing paint or wallpaper has been removed to reveal the concrete blockwork underneath, including pen and chalk markings left behind by builders during construction.

A central partition crafted from walnut wood has been erected to split the 94 square-metre floor plan in half. It is inset with a series of frameless doors, which give access to private areas like the master bedroom and bathroom.
Part of the timber partition hinges off to form a 3.2 metre-high door, which can be used to close off the office and form a second bedroom when nec...
