Lower Common South

Belying its initial appearance from the street, this is a large new build house in a London conservation area. The traditionally detailed external appearance is built to a very high constructional quality, and in response to contextual planning requirements. 4 storeys, including 3 metre high basement spaces enclose a high specification interior, in which the manipulation and proportions of the spaces, as well as the articulation of materials and detailing, all contribute to create a sophisticated dwelling that captures some of the best qualities of both classical and contemporary construction and architecture. It has been nominated for several awards.
