Private residence set within a conservation area in north London
The house, which consists of a series of planted terraces between pairs of masonry walls under a green floating roof, is hidden from the road by a sloped lawn combined with a screen of trees.
Between the two wings a partially subterranean glazed hall acts as the main entrance and core of the house. From this hall there is access to a swimming pool that shares the basement level with three garages.
A suspended staircase, designed to be reminiscent Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, provides access to the upper floors. The ground floor contains the living room, kitchen, dining room, study, morning room and a guest bedroom. The first floor has five en-suite bedrooms.
