NEW BUILD HOUSES
The cost of land within the London Boroughs is now at a premium due to the demand for housing. Developers are attempting to find all matter of ways to develop land to cater for this need. This particular site consisted of a number of un-used garages behind several blocks of flats. The heavily overlooked site provided the potential to develop a small bungalow which had little impact on the surrounding flats.
The proposed building looked to reduce the impact on the existing flats by being low in profile and providing a green roof to create an ‘extended garden’ for the first-floor flats which overlooked the site. The bungalow also consisted of a generous amount of external amenity space which reduced overlooking from the flats by providing a pergola. The result was a small functional house for a small family to cater for a contemporary way of living.
