Private House - EH Smith

Private House


Replacing a set of dilapidated garages the design for this luxury home had to respond to a complex set of site conditions, including established rights of way through the site and backing onto multiple neighbours gardens in 2 adjoining roads.

Sitting behind an unassuming ‘English garden wall’ the house is formed of three wings with bedrooms over the ground floor and living spaces at basement level. The wings are connected by a dramatic glazed spine with double height voids to bring lights deep into the basement.

Two substantial basement courtyards on the South East side formed from green ‘living’ walls provide secluded gardens rooms and bring sun and daylight into the house.

Geobrick was selected by the Architects to make the most of the light well areas with a white, hard wearing, natural stone finish.
