This unique project involved comprehensive redevelopment on the site of an existing bungalow in Honor Oak, South London. The original design and planning permission for the house was by Delvendahl Martin Architects. Our clients bought the property with the planning permission still in place, and appointed us to adjust and advance the proposals to better suit their individual requirements.
The finished house consists a pair of two-storey volumes, linked by a single storey entrance gallery. The family living spaces are located on upper floors with large picture windows and a terrace to take advantage of spectacular 360° views over London. The design of the house minimises energy use, with special solar panels storing excess heat underground while running a ground source heat-pump and mechanical heat recovery ventilation system.
