“The site of Maryland House has had difficulty obtaining planning since 2002, but in 2016 Remi Connolly-Taylor and the Studio took on the challenge as a development scheme.

She wanted a space that allowed for ample natural light and room to work in a flexible studio. The proposal provides a bold bookend to the terraced street. By utilising London stocks related to surrounding dwellings, the Studio was able to maintain the language and form of the area without compromising the quality of light to the adjacent structures.

The house combines work and living, addressing the contemporary needs of a new generation of creatives based in East London. A spacious basement studio flooded with light from intricate and carefully considered design provides the ideal space for artists and creatives to work and live.
