Patrick Lewis Architects – Private House in Hampstead

The blog of Simon Kennedy, Architectural Photographer based in London. My website is


A beautiful private house and stair designed by Patrick Lewis Architects in Hampstead, North London. The detail and build quality of the stair in particular were pretty amazing.

A cooperatively sunny day and three very cooperative children made this an enjoyable shoot. These images will be appearing in the Sunday Times in the near future.

Elevational view of the staircase. Technically a difficult shot, this is a stitch of two 5×4″ film negatives, the first showing the upper portion of the stair, the second the lower:
