Abbots Gardens, N2
Type: Demolition & Self Build
Location: Outside Hampstead Garden Suburb
Status: Almost Complete
A self-build semi-detached house located in a cul-de-sac near East Finchley Tube station, outside the Hampstead Garden Suburb. The family (including 3 young children) had bought the house which needed a full refurbishment. They decided to live in the property first for a year to better understand their needs.
Designed to bring in natural light, the skylight on top of the dining room at the rear is tilted to maximise the ingress of light. It was designed to have an integrated electric blind for moments when the sun would be too strong.Click here to read the full blog post
