Article source: AL_A 

The Exhibition Road Quarter, designed by AL_A, is the largest construction project undertaken by the V&A since its main buildings in South Kensington were completed in 1909 under the direction of Sir Aston Webb. The project has transformed the former boiler house yard on London’s great cultural artery, Exhibition Road, to create a sequence of major new spaces that will redefine the V&A’s relationship with the street and the public:

Crouch End sits in a hollow between the sharp ridge of Crouch Hill to the south and Muswell Hill to the north. Between the dialogue of views from Crouch Hill to the iconic Alexandra Palace the topography steeply descends along residential streets of terrace housing. The house forms part of the final group of four early Edwardian terrace properties on this path.
