Sheldon Avenue Granted Planning Permission

Cousins & Cousins is pleased to announce that planning approval has been granted for a new three storey over basement family home in Highgate, North London.

The house will be situated on a quiet residential street in the Highgate Conversation Area and backs onto a small wooded area near Hampstead Heath. With an approximate internal gross floor area of 615m² the home includes an open plan kitchen, living and dining room, seven bedrooms, a swimming pool, cinema, gym and steam room.

Our proposal was designed after extensive dialogue with the client and Haringey Council, to accommodate both the family’s needs and the challenges of working in a conservation area. The design aims to acknowledge and enhance its surroundings, which is mainly comprised of Arts & Crafts style properties. The house will be modern in its construction and detailing whilst referencing the local vernacular through its form and materiality.

Construction is scheduled to commence in the Autumn of 2013 with expected completion in late 2014.
