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.

The owners of the top floor flats to Cliff Road, together, aim to improve the quality of the existing housing stock. Each flat currently provides one bedroom accommodation. Both flats, as part of the planning submission, will carry out a full refurbishment as part of the works as each property requires modernisation. Both flats will be modestly reconfigured to improve the accommodation and improve the sanitary provision. A new roof extension is proposed to the existing flat roof terrace and provides new bright and airy living rooms to the new roof extension

A blue steel truss mezzanine transforms a cottage refurbishment.

Blue Steel Mezzanine  | Architects for Camden | Highgate, North West London

A small cottage in our client’s garden was under utilised but held great potential; that potential has now been realised. A new blue steel mezzanine has been inserted to run the length of the cottage to provide a significant increase in usable floor area. The cottage interior has enlivened to provide a simple but bold stand-alone accommodation for the in-laws. When the cottage is not being used by guests it retains the flexibility to provide a study area for the client’s daughters. Or in the evening it can be used as a party venue following dinner parties or where everyone can watch a film. To assist in the flexibility of space clever joinery will be incorporated to conceal the beds when they are not in use.
