vPPR reveals proposals for 'barrel-vaulted' house

  • Comment

Award-winning practice vPPR has submitted plans for a new four-bedroom house in the Queens Park conservation area of North London

The 161m2 house, which sits on the site of disused garages, features a large barrel-vaulted green roof.

The space created beneath the curved roof will be broken up by pods housing the living room, dining room, and kitchen, connected at the upper level by a bridge.

A large double height area functions as a playroom opening out onto glazed courtyards.

The scheme’s street-facing wall will be built of bull-nosed bricks designed to form a ‘curtain-like façade’ with curved doors and windows.

AJ Emerging Woman Architect of the Year and vPPR co-founder Tatiana von Preussen, said: ‘The project plays with a curved geometry at different scales of the design, from the barrel-vaulted roof to the curved balconies onto the courtyards and down to the bull-nosed bricks that make up the facade.’
