London's Open House weekend – London's Open House festival, which took place this weekend, affords Londoners the chance to nose around some of the UK capital's private and public houses, like this remodeled Victorian terraced family house in east London.
Parkholme Road, Hackney – Owner, James Wright was giving scheduled tours of his converted Victorian home, which is distinctive for its sleek and minimalist interior.
Rowe Lane, Hackney – Situated in the trendy borough of Hackney, this house designed by Marcus Lee incorporates thermal efficiency, solar heating and water recycling throughout the original structure.
Sutton House, Hackney – Sutton House was built in 1535, when King Henry VIII ruled over England and this part of London -- now busy with cars and tower blocks -- was set against miles of open grassland.
Sutton House, Hackney – One of the first Tudor homes to be made from brick, many of its original features -- including a vast stone fireplace and a wall of intricately carved dark wood panels -- remain to this day.
Barking Granary, Barking – Scattered across the breadth of London, the 750 Open House venues represent a cross-section of the city's architectural heritage, from timber-framed Tudor dwellings to the latest steel-clad contemporary towers. This restoration of a five-storey Victorian granary with its adjacent bronze-coated extension is a neat embodiment of both old and new.
Suburbanstudio, Enfield – Among some of the award-winning structures on show were this timber-built "floating" garden studio. The building is a recent winner of the New London Architecture "Don't Move, Improve" award for best home extension.
