We are delighted to announce that our Totteridge Common Project has been shortlisted for the RIBA London Regional Awards 2022.
We are delighted to announce that the family house we designed at Totteridge Common has been shortlisted for the RIBA London Awards 2022.
The house was designed to take advantage of the site’s North-South orientation. The front South side of the house faces the road and is made up of a series of solid volumes, with exaggerated deep window reveals. The rear, by contrast, is highly glazed with minimal structure beneath, allowing for uninterrupted views towards the surrounding green belt countryside.
It was important to ensure that the South sun, and quality of light, could be enjoyed in the winter. The design is focused on a single depth main family room, which takes advantage of light from both the front and rear. On the first floor, the windows are set deep into their reveals, so as not to overheat during the summer.
The fabric of the building, cladding, flooring, and windows, were carefully considered for quality and longevity. The building’s envelope is built to a high specification. Highly-insulated lightweight stud walls infill between the structural steel frame.
The house is unequivocally contemporary and contrasts to the surrounding traditional neighbouring properties, yet references the materials of the local area. Built predominantly of brick and timber, these materials are reimagined in a unique way.
We currently have numerous projects on-site, as seen below:
