All in Glass in Architecture
A view taken from the neighbouring gardens
We believe that gardens are unique spaces that shall be kept or otherwise improved and in this case architecture should sub-ordinate to the environment, this would enable to provide accommodation as well as intimate open spaces.
This is a very exciting building, providing an example of how small redundant sites can be used to provide high quality sustainable design for residential use in an area that has a varied style and scales of buildings.
The current building was built approximately in the 1743‘s and during the 1970’s was converted into a mosque. The building is a Grade II* listed building and the adjacent former school build- ing (now used as an ancillary building to the mosque) is listed Grade II.
Modest building techniques combined with bespoke copper wall panels and large skylights were used to enclose this small loft conversion. This combination was key to create a warmer and brighter space within the house.
