Architect has designed a discreet two-storey building in East Canonbury conservation area
London-based Edgley Design has won planning consent for a new detached house located in the East Canonbury conservation area in Islington, London.
The two-storey building is located on a derelict site at the end of a Georgian terrace and was previously used as a builders’ yard and workshop.
The new house is inserted behind an existing brick wall with a sunken ground floor. A single storey, dark brick-clad volume is set back from the line of the adjacent buildings and rests upon a white rendered and glass basement containing the main living spaces.
The main glazing is set in an extruded white metal frame inspired by the white stucco surrounds to the windows of the adjacent buildings.
Overlooking issues were addressed through the provision of large rooflights and a series of perforated brick screens.
Edgley Design is due to complete three new-build houses in London this summer, in addition to a metal clad house in Godalming, Surrey.
