The ‘Hidden’ House is a private family home in South-West London, which is created from two former workshop buildings and a retail space.
The Hidden House is created from the sensitive reworking of two former workshop buildings and a retail space on a complex urban site in Knightsbridge. The new family home, located within a conservation area, has been designed to be completely invisible from the street.
The existing building has been substantially rebuilt and restructured, transforming the internal spaces and creating a new sunken garden and atria. The main living areas are arranged as a sequence of linked open-place spaces, including a mezzanine study level within the roof pitch.
Large timber trusses help to define the internal spaces while a palette of timber, brick and concrete creates a contemplative environment. The garden and atria provide a flow of daylight to the lower level, containing three double bedrooms, including a large master suite with an en-suite bathroom resting within the arched pavement vaults.
The Hidden House has been designed using BIM software to allow a full understanding of the existing building’s geometry.
