This property in Putney was a former doctor's surgery. With an unusual existing arrangement, the design required an exercise in extensive creativity on this restrictive site, to develop an internal 4 bedroomed layout as a family home.
The aesthetic of the building was altered to represent its new use as a home with contemporary art deco detailing. The feature cantilever stair case connects the ground floor spaces of the open plan kitchen/dining room and living room below to the 4 bedrooms and family bathroom upstairs. Due to restrictions in the rear elevation, strategic skylighting was incorporated to flood the stairs and hallways with daylight.
At 17,000sqft, the new home will set a new landmark in large scale modernist aesthetics and design within the exclusive Coombe Estate area.
