A small triangular backland plot forms the site for this new house. Formerly occupied by a single storey shed, the planning restrictions meant that a single storey development was all that was possible to protect existing amenity and retain a sense of openness.

Won on appeal, our response was to create an L-shaped split-level house, with a small courtyard at basement level, enclosed by a curved oak screen. Materials include a burnt stock brick with copper bronze windows and a stepped green roof effectively conceals the building when viewed from above.
