Andy Martin Architects’ latest project, Mews 02, is a single family residence located in Belsize Park just northwest of London. You wouldn’t know by looking at it, but it used to be a mechanic’s garage!

The four-level home emphasizes entertaining areas and the gorgeous outdoor space. The sunken courtyard resembles a slate quarry with its charcoal blocks running externally and reaching internally to the rear of the residence. I love the black/white play here — and I fell in love with the dark stacked tile on the interior.
