New-Build House – Kentish Town, London NW5
BBP recently obtained planning permission for a two bedroom house on the site of a small, single storey retail unit.
The site’s location, size, shape and physical constraints made this a challenging project. BBP’s solution was to put the open plan living space on the first floor with bedrooms below and a large roof terrace above. The clever use of timber slatted panels and wire mesh for screening prevents overlooking and overcomes privacy issues. The house is designed in a very modern style using contemporary materials to give it its own identity and make it stand out from the surrounding properties.
