Dominic McKenzie has won approval to replace six formerly council-owned garages in Hampstead Village, north London, with an L-shaped newbuild house
Backed by Urban High Developments who bought the site from Camden Council in late 2014, the 243m² scheme features three volumes wrapped around a protected oak tree.
According to the practice, the ‘highly contextual’ home has been designed as a ’sympathetic contemporary addition to the mixed Hampstead Village context, bridging the gap between neighbouring historic, listed buildings and 1970s council housing’.
Work is expected to start on site later this year.
