This house by Alan Higgs Architects has been shortlisted in this year’s RIBA Awards.
The project was ambitious: adding three large new family living spaces to a historic house, around a mature protected tree. The site falls in two directions and is bordered by a busy road and The Regent’s Canal and is overlooked by many neighbours.

Acquisition of an adjoining site made possible a new extension to an existing Victorian period house in Brondesbury, North London, which had stabling at ground floor level originally. This enabled a doubling of the original volume and transformation into a stunning contemporary home for the two occupants.

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.

24aDorset Road is a small two bedroomed house in Alexandra Palace, north London, added onto a terrace of picturesque Victorian cottages originally built for railway workers. The clients had lived there for twenty years, loved the road and took the opportunity to sell their old house, but keep an attached garage, which became the site for their new house.Our brief was to make a simple, contemporary home, filled with light.

This end of terrace courtyard was dominated by an enormous back wall and a tall palm tree on the left. Yet it also had inspirational Italian owners and a fabulous collection of some mature architectural plants. I decided to retain all the plants in their positions as I felt this was an integral fabric of the garden. Only one plant was to be removed – an overgrown Viburnum in the right corner – to be replaced with a beautiful multi-stem bronzed trunk Tibetan Cherry. Coincidentally, retaining the plants enabled a diagonal design to be implemented, which meanders through the trees.
