Sunlight is transformative. It has the ability to change the experience of a space, as well as how we live, feel and relate to one another. We brought our Australian affinity for natural light and open-plan living to Butterfly House, an East London townhouse, while retaining its classic English details and sentiment.

HASA Architects has completed works to transform a derelict horticultural glasshouse at Highgate Bowl in North London into a new event space. The project, inspired by the frame and construction of the original building, explores the possibilities of this forgotten piece of the city by bringing it back into use through a series of small-scale interventions. These sensitive interventions take the form of new external and internal pathways, as well as rooms and furniture pieces that guide visitors through the large open bays of the glasshouse while framing views of the surrounding landscape and Bowl beyond.
