Sketchbook Thoughts,  Propping up London

The conversation surrounding infill spaces and plots within London was further advanced through the Birkbeck House development.

Transforming a slim unused space and from it creating a dynamic family home, seeking to divulge and create the essence of modern lifestyle. Applying and fusing the surrounding context whilst still creating a new prototype for a family home optimised by three quality bedroom spaces including functional amenity space on multiple levels whilst utilising the roof. The scheme reads its context and is challenged by its constraints of the slender plot that sites up to the pavement edge. The design aims to unify the unused capacity between its neighbours whilst bringing a fresh and contemporary language to the streetscape.
