Our proposals for a contemporary new build house in London Borough of Lewisham, address the issues of building in backland sites, as well as local conservation area policies. Accessed through an existing road, the site is a left over piece of land, sandwiched between the established rear gardens of Victorian terraces. Our client is looking to build a house for himself and his long term future in the Borough.
The 4-bed house 400 sqm house is conceived as a 3 storey house, including basement. Two timber clad volumes. stepped in plan, will visually float over a predominantly glazed and white rendered ground floor. Main living accommodation is at entry level, including a home working space, and open plan kitchen, living and dining area. At first floor a master suite, 2 further bedrooms and bathrooms are created, connected by a top lit hallway. Light wells will bring light to the basement for further accommodation of storage, plant areas and gym. With 2 monopitch roofs, helping to create a modern vernacular and the intention to create a low energy building with additonal renewable technologies, we hope to create a modern yet contextual additon to the housing stock in the borough.
