The end of terrace Victorian house was purchased by the clients in 2017. It had been unoccupied for over five years and had served as a women’s refuge since the 1980s.
The building's prominence within the Kentish Town Conservation Area meant that great attention had to be given to the north and west facades, through the re-installation of the removed ornamentation and fenestration. Celebrating the local tradition of the ‘painted house’ of Leverton Street, the stucco and stone details are accented with pistachio green paint and olive green woodwork. The facade treatment emphasises the building's position as a full-stop to the top of the street.
The clients' vision for the project was to allow for independence whilst encouraging family life. Each has its own entrance to the street, stairwells and makes full use of the compact building footprint, with shared amenity space to the rear. Internally, each dwelling expresses its own identity through the use of colour, materials and bespoke joinery, capturing the personality of each of the clients.
