Veil House is a new two bedroom house in Camden, London, which is currently being prepared for planning.
The visual concept for the house consists of a woven brick veil to provide privacy for the living spaces and to cast dappled light and shadows into the interior rooms. The veil creates a division between the exterior of busy Camden and the private interior, where the occupier can use slits and peepholes to view the outside world. This creates an animated façade to front a minimal structure of concrete floors and soffits, exposed timber joists and block walls. The interior is further cocooned by bamboo, which wraps around the stairs, walls, joinery and flooring. Rooflights bring natural light into the sunken spaces of the house, in order to keep it light and airy.
