Wimbledon, Greater London
PDF Project Profile
This new build, three storey, 120sqm two bedroom home in Wimbledon became an exploration in compact architecture and an investigation into contextualised aesthetics within existing street scenes. Located on a very tight site, adjacent to an existing end of terrace 1960s home, the triple fronted sloping site varies from 3-4.5m wide from front to back respectively and included large trees with preservation orders.
The scheme is a composition of alternating volumes constructed of surfaces made up of larch wood, white render, dark grey zinc cladding and masonry. The house is designed with the main living spaces and roof terrace on the top floor taking in the best of the southern sun and long distance views towards London, whilst prohibiting views to the neighbouring properties using a luminosity translucent directional film.
