Timothy Hatton designs floating stairs for Deirdre Dyson gallery

  • London firm Timothy Hatton Architects has added a burnished steel staircase to rug designer Deirdre Dyson’s Chelsea carpet gallery as part of a renovation of her studio.
  • The rest of the building has been transformed into a gallery, with rugs displayed hanging onĀ metal frameworks.
  • Lighting for the gallery was provided by Lighting Design International, who treated the building as an art gallery rather than a carpet showroom.
  • Deirdre Dyson had previously used the buildingĀ as a studio and showroom, but decided to overhaul the space to incorporate a gallery that could also display rugs as works of art.
  • The architects added glass bricks to the back wall of the gallery, to bring additional natural light into the space.
