Alma-nac has submitted plans for a split-level, four-storey house in south London
The proposed 197m² house will be built on a vacant site, which bookends a terrace, in Mallinson Road, near to Northcote Road Junction.
Chris Bryant, director at Alma-nac, said: ’The proposal is made up of a heavy base and a lightweight sculpted upper skin, which responds to surrounding views and the massing of the street. This upper skin is pinched down on the west elevation, reducing the sense of scale from Northcote Road and directing the views from roof terrace.
’The internal configuration is on split-levels with the living areas at the top of the house, where the lightweight perforated skin allows for natural light and views out over Clapham.
’The bedrooms are carved out of the heavy mass at the bottom with a small garden at the lowest level. The split-level configuration creates a series of interesting volumes and allows light from the roof to filter down to the basement.’
If approved, work is expected to start on site in March 2018, with a completion date scheduled for March 2019.
