Toh Shimazaki show how to get the most out of your townhouse. 

The site for this new three storey mews house in central London was just 3.5m wide, yet from this incredibly tight spot the practice has crafted a unique and uplifting dwelling, tailored to fit the needs of the client, an international business person.

Despite the limits of the site, the configuration of spaces within conjures up room for two shower rooms, a kitchen, dining area, bedroom, living room, a study and an external terrace. Whilst the exterior compliments the adjoining mews cottages and tall terraced buildings to the rear, a floating oak staircase loosely defines the interior spaces, spiraling around glass floor sections that, together with two glazed apertures in the roof, allow natural light to flood throughout the building.
