Via The Modern House

Wedged between a brick wall and a neighbouring property, this oval house in London’s Battersea is hidden from the street.

Though its plot is snug, behind a stack-bonded brick façade lies a surprisingly spacious two-bedroom home with sweeping curves and extensive glazing.

The blink-and-you-miss-it property is one of a pair of homes on a quiet mews – the other house is opposite – by architecture practice Parritt Leng. It’s dubbed them the ‘Battersea Roundhouses’.

From the oval floorplan to the minimalist interiors, the house has been designed to be as light and spacious as possible. The main reception room has a series of floor-to-ceiling windows.

Completely open plan, the house has no internal walls across the ground floor to obstruct the flow of light, which cascades into the room from a circular glass window in the roof of the property.

The staircase take pride of place in the building, which is on the market for £925,000 via The Modern House. Ultra-thin glass balustrades and open risers create the illusion it is floating.

Upstairs are two cocoon-like skylit bedrooms.
