Set at the foot of an existing Victorian mansion block in the heart of Hampstead, North London, this single storey  family  house is embedded within the existing topography whilst an intensive  green roof regains a large useable garden for the neighbouring residents.


This intensive  green roof, which replaces the previous sloping garden, provides terraced seating area, a lawn and a perimeter with planted foliage and small trees which will in turn provide further privacy to the occupants below.


Diagonally laid strips of oiled kebony, traditionally used in the yacht building industry, wrap the simplistic geometric form. The restricted palette of materials, natural tones  and clean lines allow the dwelling to settle within a suburban garden context.


The dwelling provides its occupants a widescreen view of the leafy surroundings through full height, minimally framed, glazed portals whilst maintaining a desired privacy.
