Scheme name: North House

Practice: Roger Stephenson Architects

Client: Private

Photographer: Daniel Hopkinson

North House is a substantial detached family home in a street of impressive Victorian villas and is an example of how an uncompromisingly contemporary house can sit comfortably and calmly in a conservation area. Its existence is due to a sympathetic planning officer who recognised on appeal the sensitivity of the composition.

Despite the affluent nature of this new family home, there is a modesty about the materials and a subtlety to the technology, which together deliver a comfortable and sustainable house.
