Expressive geometry in the heart of a residential Conservation Area
In 1997 we completely re-built a commercial mews building in a Conservation Area in Hampstead, resolving the tapering shape of the site with two elements of circular geometry that controlled the ground and first floor plans and emerged expressively on a new second floor, surrounded by a roof garden.
The proposals were highly contentious, but careful consultation with neighbours and planners led to unanimous support and a successful planning outcome. Camden Council congratulated us for our careful approach and for the completed design, and presented us with a Council Design Award.
