In the home of Corinna Dean

Join us as we step inside the home of architectural curator and lecturer Corinna Dean, who cherishes her home for its blend of personal creativity and architectural harmony, set within a serene environment. 

She lives in The Hamlet, a tranquil modernist development in Camberwell. This enclave, distanced from the hustle and bustle of South London, is a stunning mid-century townhouse originally constructed in the mid-60s according to a design by architect Peter Moiret. 

My home is essential. It is a sanctuary from the city's noise and a place where I can entertain, nurture plants, close the door, and be creative.

A historical charm with modern innovation

Embracing the home's historical essence, Corrina and her partner, architect Marcus Lee, undertook a thoughtful process of restoration and modernisation, seamlessly blending contemporary touches with Moiret's timeless design. 

This deep-seated appreciation for architectural heritage and the nuanced art of design integration are hallmarks of Corinna's professional ethos. With her esteemed background in lecturing on Architecture and Cities at the University of Westminster in London, she has developed a rich expertise in weaving together disparate ideas and themes. This expertise shines through in her architecture design studio, Archive for Rural Architecture, which explores interpretations of global landscapes, focusing on often marginal and overlooked places. 

Embracing modern tranquility in a harmonious home

The residence seamlessly integrates open-plan and distinct living spaces into a cohesive and functional environment, further enhanced by the lush greenery that encircles it. Internal cladding in Douglas Fir has been introduced in complement to this harmony, aligning perfectly with the breathtaking original open-tread staircase that ascends to the second floor. 

Within the home, wooden furniture melds effortlessly with natural light, fostering a harmonious ambiance. Each piece carries its own story and distinct character, contributing to the space's unique narrative. Among them stands the iconic Wegner J16 Rocking Chair, which Corrina purchased following a significant change in her life as a reward to mark the transition. 

About the chair, Corrina reflects: "It adds a sense of continuity of good, simple design that lasts, which is one of the values of my home".
