Folds house in North London, England by bureua de change architects

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

Article source: bureua de change architects

A three storey period terrace house in North London, appealed for a scheme that would open up views to the adjoining Parkland Walk conservation area.The focal point of the project is a pleated roof at the back of the house, which appears to be formed from a flat surface, forced to crinkle up into a faceted structure, as it is pushed up against the exterior wall. From the garden, the pleats are purposefully sunk from view, creating the impression of a simple flat roof, which allows the character of the original building to stand out.

Sunday, August 16th, 2015

Article source: NMD NOMADAS

The building is defined as a series of pleats in direct dialogue with strong topographical conditions. The tower lies on the hillside.From the natural conformation of the relief, the architectural gesture generates a transversal line to the ridge, becoming a viaduct that connects the upper and the lower part of the existing site, as it rises above the new main road design and an existing secondary road.
