Classical architect goes contemporary in North London
Collectively christened Connaught House, the set of six four-bed townhouses on a challenging site in Muswell Hill will come in at 2,500 square feet apiece, with open-plan ground floor receptions, lower ground kitchen/dining rooms, full-floor windows, and sunken gardens.Completion is slated for Summer 2018.
David Wolff, director of Wolff Architects:
“We’re already highly regarded for our skill at delivering traditional renovations and developments within a technically challenging brief. Our practice also has a lesser-known yet equally strong track-record when it comes to creating new-builds across London that other firms would struggle to deliver – it’s our secret skill.
“One of Connaught House’s biggest challenges is the site’s topography – lying as it does on a sloping road – meaning that each property needs to be designed at a slightly different level. In addition, the site is ringed by residential dwellings, challenging us to design buildings sympathetic to the neighbouring architecture whilst ensuring we create an exceptional and high-grade development for our client.”
