Space is at a premium in central London, so making the most of what is available is critical, as this unique project clearly demonstrates
On behalf of developer Manhattan Loft Corporation & Ridgeford, HOK has secured outline planning consent from Westminster’s City Council for the development of a unique family home situated in a narrow alleyway between 379-383 Euston Road in London.
The residence will be developed on an extremely constrained 3.1-m-wide site and have a net internal area of 142 sq m. HOK responded to this brief with a design for a sustainable, three-bedroom, 4.5-storey single residential unit with multiple outdoor spaces. The design features an open plan for the kitchen and dining area on the ground floor with a back outdoor courtyard. One terrace is at the back of the first floor level and a second terrace is accessible from the fourth floor master bedroom offering views of Regent’s Park.
“We’re pleased that planning has been secured for this highly unique residential project.
