Architectural photography of a Subterranean Extension to Detached Notting Hill Villa.

The blog of Simon Kennedy, Architectural Photographer based in London.

This project, to entirely reconstruct a villa creating open plan living and an incredible subterranean pool, was designed by London-based practice 23 Architects. The design features beautifully crafted interiors with custom furniture and bespoke joinery and wall surfaces, and a stairwell that delivers beautiful soft light through a modifying glazed screen.
