Remodelling of ‘House of Books’ complete

SHH has completed the re-modelling of the ‘House of Books’ in Hampstead, the former home of Labour leader Michael Foot, known for covering almost every inch of the property in books. True to the spirit of the house, the new owners are also avid readers (owning over 100 linear metres of books) and the property has now been completely redesigned to ensure that their book collection is a central feature, with an aluminum, two-sided bookcase forming a spine around which all five storeys of the spectacular new steel and orange rubber stair are wrapped.
