Primrose Hill, London
In transforming a structurally unsound Victorian townhouse into a contemporary family home, the habitats of a typical Victorian home were reconsidered from first principles. The building needed to be stabilised and demanded serious renovation, which focussed the design development. In consideration of the needs of the site and the family’s brief, a distinctive concrete figure was designed, a compelling object in its own right which also acts as structural support for the building.
A series of interconnected volumes were created, running from the front of the house through to an addition at the rear of the property. Here, a portion of the garden was embraced as integral to the main living space.
