A 26-square-meter home in London by Spheron Architects

Spheron Architects furnished a 26-quare-meter room in London, transforming it into a space for an artist to live and work as a hermit. The London-based studio designed this room on the first floor os a Victorian house in Clapham to create the “Urban Hermitage“, the home and studio of the artist.

Using mirrors, wooden cabinets, and white net curtains, the design team offer an escape from the busy city. Using simple finishes in the interior, the designers evoke the “melancholy, secluded feel” of religious retreats, including an exposed concrete wall and black-stained timber flooring.

“It recreates the tranquil and melancholic beauty of a remote monastery in Belgium in a domestic studio flat in London just 26 square meters in size,” said the architects.

“The client wanted to find a way to transport the feeling of remoteness to the urban setting, exploring the concept of solitary and monastic seclusion amidst the bustle of London.”

At either end of the room, hosting and hiding different functions, are placed large storage units. Clad in timber panelling, the first unit opens to reveal a full kitchen and the entrance to a wet room. In the wardrobe and storage space is also the bed. Everything is covered in mirrors intended to make the room appear larger than it is.

“Despite its size, the apartment feels open and spacious due to the use of mirrors and two cleverly designed storage units at either side of the room,” said the team.

Net curtains are used to diffuse natural light from the street-facing window. As the only soft material in the room, they contrast with the bare, harsh textures elsewhere. The only piece of furniture is a small wooden desk and chair, which faces the concrete wall.

“I wanted to create a monastic ambiance and to live a life of bucolic solitude within my tiny room,” said the artist who lives in the flat. “The new apartment has allowed me to mentally and physically escape the world outside, where I can now turn away from the banalities of life and focus on doing my creative work.”
