Work starts on Square Feet's 'unapologetically Modern' Hampstead House


Construction has begun on a partly below-ground 278m² house in Hampstead, north London, designed by Square Feet Architects

According to the emerging practice, the ‘unquestionably and unapologetically modern’ home in Thurlow Road follows in the footsteps of the many ‘iconic one-off’ Modernist homes in the area, including Wells Coates’s Isokon flats, Max Fry’s house in Frognal Way and Michael and Patty Hopkins’s own home in nearby Downshire Hill.

The proposed £1 million, three-storey house for a music lawyer and his family will replace an existing ’slightly dowdy bungalow’ and will be clad in rough-sawn stained timber and polished plaster.

Daniel Leon, director at Square Feet Architects, said: ‘We are extremely excited to finally see this project materialise after a long gestation period, but soon we will see the fruits of our labours. The house will look great we think and hopefully, in due course, add to the panoply of Modernist classics in Hampstead.’

Work is expected to complete next September.
