We were asked to look at creating a separate new dwelling on a very wide plot in Barnet overlooking green space.
An Edwardian villa sits to one side of the sloping site and we appointed to create designs for a separate house with a physical link to the original house. The new house would be occupied by part of the family to live in.
To monopolise on the slope of the site the rear of the new house has a basement level which opens out at the rear to a sunken garden providing privacy between the houses whilst maintaining the appearance at street level of a 2 storey house with loft conversion. The building would be finished in white render to pick up on the roughcast finish to the Edwardian villa.
