Add an artist’s studio as ancillary accommodation to your rear garden.

Ancillary Garden Studio | Architects for Camden | Camden Square Conservation Area

With a significant growth in the market for this type of garden accommodation. The form of the artist’s garden studio has been explored and developed further to create an architectural solution that is visually interesting within the garden environment.

The artist’s garden studio responds directly to the criteria stipulated for outbuildings. The proximity of the studio to the party fence wall has resulted in a well-considered modelling to determine the form and massing of the studio. Given the distance from the main house and the adjacent property on Camden News, the impact of the artist’s garden studio is considered to be minimal and would not have a significant impact on the residential amenity of the adjoining owners/ occupiers.

A new build house near Hampstead Village.

New Build House | Architect for North West London | Forrester Architects

We’re looking into a new build house solution for a current client. There is already a house on the plot but it is considered by Camden Planning of no architectural merit. It will be demolished. In its place a new open plan house of approximately 3000sq/ft. Near to Hampstead Village, the house will be set within the local conservation area. Our client is keen to avoid over developing the site and the house will not be overbearing scale and massing. The street facade will present a masonry frontage to complement the traditional context. To the rear, the garden is South facing and a sustainable energy strategy will be adopted to make the most of its perfect aspect.
