Cost: N/ANutley Terrace is a new build residential scheme, providing two spacious contemporary townhouses on a difficult brownfield site in a north London Conservation Area.
The site had been occupied by a row of six single-storey garages. Although the site had clear development potential, earlier attempts by others to develop it had failed and the site was falling into dereliction. The brownfield site itself presented a series of problems, including multiple ownerships (and party wall agreements) and a lack of external space. Financial viability was only possible thanks to a complex structural design enabling construction close to the adjacent apartment block and a basement under the entire site.
A stepped arrangement mediates between a tall adjacent 1940s block and neighbouring Edwardian houses. A varied palette of timber, stone and glass creates an attractive and durable façade, and incorporates a series of spacious private roof terraces and balconies.
Each house is large, light and airy, and finished to a high specification. Living and entertaining areas are arranged on the upper storeys to enjoy views over London, with bedrooms and other more private spaces beneath. Detailing - from timber staircases to vertical stone cladding – is executed to an extremely high standard.
