Paxton Locher House

Situated right in the heart of Clerkenwell, Paxton Locher House was built in the mid-1990s and is a popular destination during 'Open House London'. The ingenious architecture of this house embodies KI's ethos of finding innovative solutions to unique design challenges for its clients.

Secluded behind buildings facing the Green, this split-level home presented a design challenge – enclosed by its neighbours, the site had no opportunity for windows. Instead, the architects created a space flooded with natural light by adding skylights and a large retractable glass ceiling over the central atrium. This transforms into a beautiful open internal courtyard in fine weather – the perfect setting for KI's programme of events within the space.

Daily tours will be hosted by the owner for those wishing to learn more about the house.
