It is finally taking shape!
MWA’s 2012 commission to design a landmark family home in Hampstead overlooking the west of Hampstead Heath commenced on site in late 2019 with groundworks due for completion in late 2020. This exciting new-build development is set into the steep incline of Hampstead Hill in the historical Garden Suburb of Hampstead and sits amongst a rich architectural heritage alongside some of London’s finest modernist houses by notable architects including Richard Meier, Norman Foster and Ernö Goldfinger.
We have proposed a modern design solution for the home which is set over four floors, including a swimming pool, gymnasium and open-plan living spaces. We have utilised large expanses of glazing to take advantage of the scenic views over the Heath and to bring daylight deep into the rear of the plan. Planning Permission was initially granted by Camden in 2014 and since then, MWA have successfully obtained two further planning permissions, to suit the evolving requirements of the client. The project is due to complete in December 2021.
The project team is Robert Douge, Tori MacCabe, Tim Blackwell and Sam Wood.
