This modernist concrete and glass house sits on the boundary of Highgate Cemetery in north London, with spectacular views right across the city. It replaces an earlier house by the noted architect John Winter, and exploits the full potential of a restricted site to provide a generous family residence set over four floors.
The minimalist design aesthetic features exposed fair faced concrete walls and floor slabs, extensive frameless glazing in sliding and folding formats and a sizeable sliding glass rooflight capable of transforming the upper floor into an open air courtyard.
The project was completed to an extremely high standard throughout, a fact that was recognised by it receiving a RIBA award in 2009 and Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association Award in 2008.
