Infill building that unites two period terraces on a narrow site while maximising the usable space of a constrained site footprint

The project is a sustainable insertion into the urban fabric of north London. The design subtly references the proportions, materiality and texture of the neighbouring buildings and number 73 bus.

Practical componets on the building include a sedum roof, recycled building components, passive design features, an air source heat pump, sheep's wool insulation and an Insulslab concrete slab. The combined U Values are below the Building Regulations requirements.

Much of the interior work comprises contrasting surfaces and materials such as bare face plywood, exposed laminated beams and diagonally orientated floor boards. The stair is constructed in plywood and wraps around a triangular shaped void bringing daylight into every storey of the house.
