Garden Suburb House

Set amongst the suburban mix of attractive Arts and Crafts homes in a North London conservation area, this project required a tempered approach that married the client’s desire for a classic-contemporary design with the restrictions of local planning sensibilities.

We drew inspiration from the Arts and Crafts houses nearby. By studying their complex symmetries, materials and mass, we secured planning permission without compromising the client’s vision, delivering a house that was considerably larger than what had preceded it.

Inside, the hall is full of light, delicacy and experience with the staircase adding playful connections to the upper floor as well as enhancing the spaciousness of the house by creating a double storey high void.

The careful selection of finishes bring a warmth and luxury, creating a stylish, contextually responsive new home.
