FORMstudio’s Flatiron House makes a virtue of a redundant and impractical office building in central London, transforming it into a home described as ‘a staircase with rooms’.

Flatiron House Fitzrovia

The house is located just off Oxford Street in London’s Fitzrovia district. Its small triangular footprint means that only one principal room occupies each of the house’s five floors, which is topped by a roof terrace. Each space is vertically linked by the signature staircase.

Its white acrylic balustrade falls through the house like a twisted ribbon, framing the 14 metre view from the glass roof to the basement, and giving an unexpected sense of scale.

At street level, the previous shopfront has been replaced with a curved window which follows the prowlike shape of the building. Above it, a curved perforated white acrylic screen allows light into the interior space while maintaining privacy. The previously damp vault has been transformed into a wine cellar and media room beneath the street.
