A new family home for a tree-filled back garden site in Brent, North West London.
In order to avoid all trees on the site, the house is positioned hard up against the street boundary where the existing timber fence wraps the ground floor of the house.
Above the fence the house references the form and materials of neighbouring post-war and modern housing.
To the rear, a glazed two-storey living and dining space faces south through the trees, views and dappled light giving a feeling of living in a woodland clearing.
Designed for an Artist, the 3-bedroom house also includes a 60sqm basement studio and workshop.
Planning Permission was received in April 2019 and construction was completed in 2021.
