A new-build house in St. John’s Wood
Having achieved Planning permission in late 2013, RDA have entered into the detailed design phase of a new build house project in St. John’s Wood. The project involves the replacement of the existing house with a new contemporary property of almost double the size of its predecessor. The footprint has only been marginally increased. The significant additional increase in area comes from a new basement and rear and side extensions.
The design seeks to provide a unique contemporary response to the character of the existing street scene by echoing the proportions of neighbouring houses using high quality handmade brick. Through the introduction of a basement and a single storey extension at ground level, the new house will offer double the floor space whilst retaining the existing massing at first floor and roof level. Demolition and construction is due to commence this summer.
