Threefold completes Highgate home

  • 1 Comment

Threefold Architects has completed this new detached house in Highgate, north London 

PLANS • PROJECT DATA • SPECIFICATION

Sitting at the end of a street of detached homes, the brick house is located in an existing garden and is screened by mature trees and planting. 

Designed as a ‘garden house’, the scheme  features two first floor volumes which float above the sloping site on brick piers. 

Inside a glazed double height atrium runs through the middle of the house bring light into the centre of the plan. Within this space a bridge and feature staircase provide access to the first floor bedrooms. 

At the back of the house the spaces have been dug into the garden, while at the front the rooms open out to a south facing terrace.

    Another great project by up and coming young architects.
    A few years ago they were tenants in my Shoreditch Studio.
    They continue to impress.
