New-build house on a constrained site in a south London conservation area


The design and orientation is in part driven by the established mews typology, combined with the desire to capitalise upon views across the spacious verdant setting afforded to the rear


The proposals use a mixture of reclaimed stock brick and copper alloy cladding to compliment the tones of stock brick and painted brickwork prevalent in the area


Despite the compact size, the design creates a sense of openness and interaction with the outside, with the metal cladding wrapping into the building via a central lightwell, based on the spatial ambiguity of a Klein bottle


Works are currently underway with completion expected in October 2018
