Klippan House in Hampstead, London by Belsize Architects

The house, a grade 2 listed building, set opposite Hampstead Heath was designed by Ewen Christian, an RIBA president and Gold medalist, and built in 1881. The brief was to return the 900 sqm four storey building, previously divided into four flats, into a single-family home and to add a new subterranean swimming pool to the side of the house and a garage for 3 cars over the pool.

The challenge was to re-create a house equal to its former glory, using a contemporary language where the original had disappeared, and yet make sure that the dialogue between the old and new remained open. In this process, some of the original aspects of the design were also rediscovered and restored. The design was very special and specific. Its success depended on usage of master craftsmen which could not only restore but create the new design with all its intricacy in juxtaposition with the old.
