We have built two new homes on a small site in Kentish Town. Three garages previously occupied the site, which is on a small mews backing onto Kentish Town Road.
The form and massing of the new buildings are arranged to maximise flexible living accommodation, pick up on the roof profile of the adjacent building, and minimise impact on neighbours. The street elevation is carefully composed with large, simply detailed openings animating the street frontage. External walls are generally in a pale weathered facing brick. At ground floor, large sliding entrance screens in perforated weathering steel provide physical and visual protection to the recessed entrance spaces. At first floor, flush balconies in front of the large openings are similarly detailed in perforated metalwork.
The building is designed to achieve CSH Level 4 and is Lifetime Homes compliant.
