Behind the humble-seeming brick façade typical of its north London location lies the cavernous home of architect Amanda Levete. An advantageously placed former dress factory - sat directly behind the Victorian terraced house - provided the British designer with the opportunity to expand.
Beginning her career working under celebrated modernist architect Richard Rogers, Levete made her mark at iconic design practice Future Systems, founded by her and her then husband, the late Jan Kaplický. In 2009 Levete set up her own studio, ‘AL_A’, which has since won commissions including an extension at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum and a mosque for Abu Dhabi’s future World Trade Centre.
“An image by Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama sits alongside original Sex Pistols artwork.”
Here, the RIBA Stirling Prize-winner walks us through the vast curve-filled space that she calls home. Artworks that give a sense of her eclectic taste include an image by Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama and a slashed canvas by Italian artist Lucio Fontana -whose work Levete says has had a huge influence on her designs.
