A new build residential scheme sat on the edges of Primrose Hill for the Linton Group. The site occupies a corner plot, currently occupied by three outdated and dilapidated townhouses. The area itself is characterised by large blocks of residential units that bordering the adjacent parks in a variety of architectural styles.
Sitting within a complicated rights of light envelope and surrounded by buildings of varying scales a series of steps have been employed to mediate between the 2 storey terrace houses of Well’s Rise and the larger blocks on St. Edmund’s Terrace. Following pre application advice from Westminster Council steps were taken to realign the mass of the building with the original terrace line, providing a unified frontage to St Edmund’s Terrace.
The proposed building is comprised of 9 generous units, with a mix of 2, 3 & 4 bedrooms including 2 penthouse apartments. Garden spaces have been provided
Basement levels are used for car parking accessed from street level via a car lift.
Alluding to the mansard roofs of nearby buildings the top floor is clad in metalwork, while the lower levels are clad in a high quality long format brick in keeping the with traditional London masonry.
