The client’s instruction was to form a self-contained nanny flat, under the garden, whilst still retaining use of the garden, in this Victorian terraced property in Swiss Cottage.
A reinforced concrete ‘box’ was formed to house this space, with perimeter walls kept as thin as possible.
Within this ‘box’, a glass cube was built to create a courtyard space for the unit.
Unsightly internal downstand beams were avoided by using changes of level to locate main beams.
