Rooftop Escape: Hut by Hut Architecture

Rooftop Escape: Hut by Hut Architecture

This little house by London firm Hut Architecture sits on top of a three-story Victorian in the city. Owner Morag Myerscough says that escaping to her rooftop hut feels "like being on a holiday. In the evening it's really warm and cozy, and during the day it's all bright and just...happy." The hut has a few interesting features...

...including a wood-burning stove, a sliding skylight, solar panels, and sheeps' wool insulation. The inside is made from plywood walls covered in cherry veneer, and the exterior is raw timber. Myerscough uses the hut as a kitchen and dining area—her own personal urban hideaway.

There's a great video with a tour of the Roof Hut, where you can see the surrounding roofscapes dotted with small structures—the view reminds us of Dick van Dyke singing in Mary Poppins, "There's things half in shadow and halfway in light. On the rooftops of London...what a sight."
