Triangle House

Brown Urbanism

Camden, 2024

Under £100k Prize


A triangular, self build 40m2 home built within the confines of a former mechanics garage in West Hampstead, Camden, London UK. 
The site is a triangular plot, marking the corner of a two Victorian terraced streets nestled amongst the various railway lines leading to West Hampstead stations. 
The architect worked with the client to create a home of contradictions:  Both small in plan and generous in volume; both private from the street yet open and expansive in its interior outlook. They wanted to create a prototypical ‘work-home’, not just a workplace and not just a home. It would be a typology defined by neither identity. Instead it would be a place that supports a range of activity, be it domestic, cultural or commercial.

“Having lived in London warehouses over the past decade, we knew the triangular garage could prove to be an exciting place in which to live and work without having to sacrifice its unique characteristics. The large windows, painted brick and exposed joists make it feel like an industrial relic to which we can re-occupy and provide a new lease of life.”
