Originally occupied by artisan workers, the Lambeth Marsh House gives a 19th-century London home a new life. With respect to the heritage of the building, much of the historic details were carefully refurbished back to their original state. The neglected wood paneling on the walls, window and door moldings, and fireplace surrounds were revived to keep the authenticity of the interior intact. A minimalist approach to the decor offset the traditional values of the home's classic finishes. While most of the modest brick dwelling remained the same, the ground floor welcomed a glazed addition to add a generous amount of both space and light.
