Claridge completes home in garden of London mansion block

  • Comment

Claridge Architects has inserted this 188m² single-storey home behind a Victorian mansion block in the heart of Hampstead, north London

Nestled ‘at the foot of the existing’ building and ‘embedded’ into the site - originally a sloping garden - the house has a large green roof which can be used by the neighbouring residents.

According to the practice, the scheme on Oak Hill Park is wrapped in ‘diagonally laid strips of oiled kebony, traditionally used in the yacht building industry’.
