White Patio House in Camberwell
The project is an extension and renovation of an existing Victorian terrace. The project was conceived as a prototype for urban dense living, where the development has been thoughtfully maximized within local planning constraints. It successfully responds to the challenge of making experientially rich dwelling within the context of congested cityscape.
Being inspired by Belgian brutalism, the exposed blockwork with high recycled content delineate the whole perimeter of the site as a uniting theme and contriving an ascetic domesticity. The blockwork, steel beams, floor and metal deck - most of the materials have been left true and exposed. The new additions’ façade have been clad in off-white corrugated steel sheets matching to the aluminum color of windows frames and doors.
