We were commissioned to design a replacement new build house on a prominent and challenging corner site in Hampstead for a private client.
The proposed building is a new 8,000sqft house with basement. An axial entrance route and triple height entrance hall in the heart of the home, allow the rooms to unfold either side, bringing light to deep into the plan form.
The design is a rational response to the site constraints, with a newly orientated front elevation that maximises the connections with the terraced garden. External material choices include a muted red brick, terracotta stone panels and patinated copper roof, which respond sympathetically to the local context, allowing for a modern interpretation of the local vernacular.
