Soon to be Revealed – Sheldon Avenue
Cousins & Cousins has almost completed a new three storey house with basement in Highgate, North London. Referencing traditional elements of a double fronted villa, this modern new build house plays on the vernacular language with a series of large openings that ‘slip’ past each other to form a contemporary front elevation with a set of three modern dormer windows to the roof that maintain the prevailing eaves and ridge heights.
