Feilden Fowles has been granted planning permission by the London Borough of Kensington & Chelsea for the redevelopment of a site of three existing post war terraced houses in London’s Notting Hill into a contemporary development of two new build town houses.
The proposed design is the result of a comprehensive assessment of the characteristically Victorian and late Georgian architectural context of the Ladbroke Conservation Area. The design seeks to align itself with the proportions of the historic streetscape drawing upon motifs of the existing architecture.
The existing split level 1950s terraces will be demolished and replaced with two new-build family dwellings. The houses are unified externally in precast concrete and brick with an upper storey conceived as a lightweight timber framed pavilion taking advantage of panoramic views over the historic Ladbroke estate with its expansive communal gardens and radiating street pattern along the contours. Internally the designs reflect each client’s individual characters and living preferences, one opting for larger open-plan spaces and the other preferring an enfilade of rooms, carefully designed to accommodate the display of large artworks.
