Garden House

Client: Private
Structural Engineer: Price & Myers
Contractor: Roman Lake Ltd
Stage: Completed

On a tight end-of-garden site, we were able to seize the opportunity of direct street access and secure planning consent for a new 2-bed house over 3 levels.   With issues of privacy restricting fenestration, the design cleverly introduces natural light through clerestory glazing, rooflights and a stepped terrace down to the basement to maximise the south facing aspect.

Internally, the stair provides a striking feature and creates dramatic light effects deep into the floor plan.  The stair was CNC cut from Tintab timber sheets and expresses the raw cutting process with the radii of the cutting bit left on show rather than filled or hidden.
