DESIGN for a NEW HOUSE in a semi-rural setting north of London:
Set on an existing long narrow plot within a ribbon development of large inter-war houses, the form of this substantial 4 storey family home responds to Planning and site constraints to maximise the interior volume.
The period style of neighbouring property is re-interpreted to produce a modern light filled home relevant to today's family with strong connections to the garden and rural views to front and rear.
A rich variety of spaces are envisaged including:
- a double height living space overlooking the garden with clerestory windows designed to promote passive solar principles.
- a family living/ dining kitchen with two walls of glass opening onto the garden.
- a lofty studio space and roof terrace at mezzanine level.
- principal bedroom suite formed within its own distinct volume.
- a galleried staircase, steps back and opens up to a top lit atrium space above.
- flexible basement living spaces set around an open courtyard enclosed by retaining walls that form primary foundations.
