SHH were appointed as lead architect and interior designers to fully refurbish and extend this substantial property in Highgate. SHH obtained Planning Permissions to refurbish the property, retain facades, develop its interiors and deliver a modern town house of 15,000 sq ft to the highest specification.
The interiors and fully accessorized FF&E packages are designed to be a contemporary classic, incorporating highly specific client requirements within elements throughout the scheme. The design creates a seamless and flowing contemporary home.
SHH received a brief from our client to modernise their 1920’s home built by CHB Quennell in Highgate, north London. After undergoing various extensions over its lifetime, planning permission within the Highgate Conservation Area was obtained to retain the original façade whilst creating a more rational and contemporary language towards the rear of the site.
The scheme maintains the Arts and Crafts style in a traditional language and hierarchy whilst adding a heavily glazed rear façade that takes advantage of the wonderful views across the extensive garden. Internally, generous room sizes are evident across all four floors, which includes the new basement. A mix of formal and family communal rooms make up the ground two floors with a large master suite and kids rooms locate above. Notable features include the split level pool, open living and dining area, outdoor BBQ pit, car stacker, home cinema and bar, as well as a detached summer pavilion adjacent to the sports pitch.
