Ravenscourt Gardens is a quiet residential street close to Ravenscourt Park, with excellent schools and transport links. The two-storey property enjoys a 205 sqf rear garden, as well as a traditionally organised front garden.
An overarching concept of wellbeing has considerably influenced the project, resulting in ample natural ventilation, minimalistic interiors and innovative lighting strategies for maximum comfort. Cleverly integrated light wells at most levels, such as a hidden void in the front garden, flood living spaces with daylight and drastically improve the quality of living. The design, sensitive to its context, respects the scale, materiality and typology of its surroundings through elegant detailing and a subtle form. The front façade is realigned with neighbouring properties, and neat brick detailing constitutes a clean, calm aesthetic. Through a series of planning applications, extensions to the roof, rear and basement create large amounts of new floor space, establishing a flexible design that can be adapted into two individual flats or a large family home.
