Kenwood Lee House
Set within the Highgate Conservation Area, this new-build family home offers a contemporary new take on a double fronted suburban villa, through a design that plays on scale and form.
Kenwood Lee House echoes the traditional vernacular with an uncompromisingly sleek glazing to the rear which affords generous views to the woodlands to the back of the house. A board-marked concrete core forms the top-lit triple height heart to the house, articulating the relationship between intricate material details and the airy, well-considered spaces.
With our client – who was also the main contractor – we collaborated on our shared passion for exquisite detailing which proved instrumental in creating their home. In keeping with the distinct Arts & Crafts heritage of the area, we wanted to celebrate the joy of making with meticulous craftsmanship that extends from the tactile delight of the concrete walls to the bespoke metal hardware on the doors.
