A beautiful family home has been created from a long neglected property near Highgate Wood. The scheme makes judicious use of planning allowances to provide a luxurious master suite in the expanded roof space. While the front elevation restores the original character of the house, the rear celebrates a contemporary design approach with carefully balanced volumes and materials. The interior celebrates the clients' personality with clever focus of components allowing for budgetary constraints. The garden formed an integral part of the project resulting in a holistic lifestyle approach.
