Welcome to series 2 of House Tours Open Door. We've been busy filming gorgeous homes over the summer, filled with cool and clever ideas from their creative owners. 

We plan to beam you into eight jaw-dropping homes, to hear from the owners and to get under the skin of exactly what makes a place special. Inspiration from the comfort of your living room? Sounds like a double win.

EPISODE 1 - AT HOME WITH DAVID MONEY

Architect, David Money has kindly agreed to show us round and give us the lowdown on how he turned this former Edwardian terrace into this spectacular modern space. 

David Money founded his practice, David Money Architects in 2002. He and his team specialise in creating interest through form, light and the natural beauty of materials, resulting in spaces that uplift and inspire.

The house is in a conservation area, so it would have been difficult to get planning permission for major additions. Instead, David’s aim was to create as much space as possible within the shell of the building. 

By lowering the ground floor by 30cm, adding a skinny 1-metre side return and converting the attic, he’s created an enviable modern home – part luxe loft, part smart townhouse – within the confines of an Edwardian terrace.

The key elements were getting as much natural light into the ground floor as possible. To achieve this, the side return has panels of glazing running its entire length.

At the top of the house, a roof light and a glazed panel in the landing floor pulls daylight through to the lower level.

Exposed reclaimed brick (from the original structure), concrete and raw plywood feature throughout adding warmth and texture.

The statement cantilevered concrete table serves as a kitchen working area and a sociable space. It can actually fit 16 people round it.
