Under strict planning guidelines and in a conservation area, this scheme was conceived as a bespoke insertion into a formal street scene. An addition to the late Edwardian town houses, this spiralled home becomes a special object in the historic urban fabric.
A contemporary interpretation of form, order and articulation, the new building references scale, massing and given building lines. The entry portico extrudes to the site boundary mimicking the adjacent entrances. A split level section maximises the floor plate which includes an open plan living, dining and kitchen as well as two bedrooms. Along with carefully placed windows, the spaces are side lit by translucent glass panels. Within the curve of the building a mature tree will be planted camouflaging the building into the given environment.
