East London is the home of the Herringbone brick house. Tucked away behind tall a charming street is the newly established abode just recently completed by architect, Atelier ChanChan. It's an ambitious interpretation of modern-day vernacular architecture, taking its name from a distinctive brick facade.

Previously, the angular site contained the remnants of a small-dilapidated residential structure. Recognizing a golden opportunity, the architect set to work by reinventing the site with a design that would become the firm's project and private home.

The result is a stunning and comforting home with beige walls, white ceilings and matching furniture and linens. The space is large and open, increasing light and airflow throughout the home enabled by a plan split into two levels.
