J-JLA has won the go-ahead for this new build private house in Dartmouth Park, north London.
The scheme was given the green light last week by Camden Council after a lengthy consultation process with local residents, as the project involved demolishing a gardener's cottage.
J-JLA's Modernist house, overlooking Parliament Hill, sits among five-storey red-brick Edwardian mansion blocks, and will, according to the practice, offer the cutting edge in sustainable design.
The scheme will predominantly use red brick, to 'respect its setting' but also because brick offers better thermal mass.
The building will also boast Solar Thermal Panels on the roof, while piled ground-source heat pumps will provide 70 per cent of the energy used for heating and hot water.
The development is the first new building for the practice, which it hopes to begin on site later in the year.by Richard Vaughan
