The Judd

Bradley Van Der Straeten Architects

: Structural Design Studio Ltd

The refurbished and extended house in Tottenham, North London is a testament to fun and colourful design and is inspired by the work of the iconic artist Donald Judd. The clients, both retired and in their mid-60s, wanted a space that would be both functional and visually stimulating. The design is truly unique, with sculptural tiles adorning the walls and a striking semi-circular roof grid arcade that sets it apart from other homes in the area. The main inspiration for the semi-circular roof was Judd's sculpture ‘Untitled’ from 1963, which represents a concave space through the repetition of arched strips. The interiors take inspiration from Judd’s use of bold simple forms in strong colours and combines those with the contrasting earthy tones of brick, ceramic and concrete.
