Comprehensive Redesign of a Traditional Mews House
Constrained on three sides and working within a small footprint on a tight site, the design brief concentrated on maximizing floor area and natural light. The redesign was approached in a three dimensional manner, reconsidering floor levels and their relationship to the street façade and connecting spaces.
The house now occupies four floors and a roof terrace. Careful room organisation and material choices, such as limed oak flooring and glass handrails, have given the mews house a new sense of space and lightness.
Planning Gain and Party Wall Awards
A successful planning strategy was employed that provided significant additional floor space and a fully accessible roof terrace. Additional accommodation was created within a basement fronting the street, concealed behind carefully designed timber louvres. Six Party Wall Awards were successfully negotiated.
