Highgate, London N6
BBP have recently completed a new-build, single family one-off house for an end user client. It is located in the Highgate Conservation Area. Planning permission was granted on appeal with the inspector praising the high quality of BBP’s design. The project comprised the demolition of the entire side and rear of the house, including the roof, and retention of the front façade plus key features such as the chimney stack.
The side walls and roof were rebuilt to replicate the original house using hand-made imperial bricks (sourced from a small bespoke brick manufacturer) plus roof tiles to match. The rear and part of the sides of the new house were re-built in a contemporary style using linear bricks and a large glass structure to connect the inside of the house with its mature rear garden
The house comprises 6000sq.ft. of internal space over three floors plus a small basement, seven bedrooms and an open plan living area on the ground floor where the spaces can be subdivided by hidden sliding doors. The entrance hallway has a dramatic triple height space.
BBP worked with interior designers Cave Interiors plus Modular and Philip Skilton who did the hard and soft landscaping respectively. The contractors were Blake Builders.
