Have you ever thought about transforming a shed into a family home? Well, now you don’t have to after this family managed to create a unique abode nestled inside the UK’s biggest and busiest cities on the site of a former timber shed.

With property prices in and around the City of London rising every day, there is little surprise more and more people are looking for inventive ways of creating a space to live in.

This bright and airy family home, created by De Rosee Sa architects, is sandwiched between garages and homes in West London, sits on the site of a former timber storage yard, and it couldn’t be a more perfect example for those looking for something different.

Owners of the former shed space approached the Notting Hill – based De Rosee Sa, who had previously created wonderfully unique homes in and around the city, to help create a home of their dreams.

With a number of planning and construction restrictions, it is often difficult to find suitable designs for new homes in the capital, but with a sharp eye for creativity and an interest in incorporating the surrounding environment into their projects, De Rosse Sa accepted the challenge and excelled in creating a remarkable family space.

The end result is a 1,200 square foot home featuring a living room, kitchen and bedroom with an en-suit on the ground floor. To adhere to re-development height regulations, a second en-suit bedroom was created in a new basement level.

With privacy a big issue when constructing a home like this, windows were inserted onto a collection of imposing steel and glass doors that flow through the home – which allow an abundance of natural light to fill the space.

The interiors all feature neutral white tones, natural wooden paneling – a homage to the location’s previous use – and herringbone flooring, all of which work together to lessen the industrial feel of the home.

The home also has three external courtyards, which are all connected to the home.

It is unique space that provides the family with everything they need and could set off a chain reaction of more former shed or industrial spaces being transformed into stunning homes.
