Peekaboo House in Islington, London by Lipton Plant Architects

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

Article source: Lipton Plant Architects

Peekaboo House is located near Newington Green in N1, Islington and benefits from the side access and parking space where our site was identified. The clients were current residents of the property and had already completed extensive refurbishment works in addition to the modern glazed extension at Lower Ground floor completed by the previous owner. Our brief was to create an effective separate single bed dwelling for a nanny with the impending arrival of their first child. Although we were able to utilise some of the side access to form the new addition the client was insistent upon retaining the parking space and as much of the rear patio as possible. Furthermore it was important to retain an access for the client from front to back via the side access to ensure security of the overall property was in their control.
