South London House Reduction

Lambeth, UK, 2013 - 2014

Complete re-structuring of a large two bay-fronted house in South London to remove a large extension blocking off light and views to the small garden. A new smaller extension was inserted on the existing building line to create a large new garden room opening to a double enfilade each side of the hall, with new oak parquet floor and matching oak-framed bespoke doors and windows. The upper floors were re-modelled and a third floor was added within the existing roofspace by lowering the second floor ceiling.

Europan 8 Housing Competition

Milton Keynes, 2006
‘Lost Garden City Found’
One of two shortlisted schemes

The project aims to defend and enrich the Garden City environment of Milton Keynes by proposing a suburban apartment typology that increases densities and provides flexible and generous living spaces. Three buildings sit as objects within a communal garden within a low and deep hedge. Each apartment has a private loggia at the corner of the building, a larger shared entrance loggia with vertical circulation acts as a space of encounter in each building.
