The Experimental Textile House is a project by Patrick Lewis Architects that combines architecture with history and textiles. 5 different fabric installations weave their way through the interior of a 4-storey townhouse in West London - celebrating the lives of a family of drapers who lived in the house over a 100 years ago.
Deepa Panchamia made a three-dimensional installation that twisted and turned from the top of the house through to the master bedroom. Consisting of hundreds of small fragments, a range of white translucent fabrics were cut, stitched and layered together to create an intricate, never-ending structure of interlocking stairways.
The Experimental Textile House was shortlisted for the Architects’ Journal (AJ) Retrofit Awards and was part of Open House London in September 2015.
