The tight site for this new Wandsworth house is fairly typical of the challenging back land sites London architects deal with. Wandsworth architect Will Caradoc-Hodgkins of London residential architect and interior designer 4D Studio liked the site so much he also built his own home on it! Having originally designed and built the main house for previous clients on the site that is bound on three sides by a school and existing houses, our residential architects and interior designers were asked to radically alter the interior to suit the differing needs of the new owners, an artist and an antiques dealer. They had specific requirements to display their collection of 20th century furniture and an important art collection.
The answer to the restrictions posed by the site have led Will to develop a design with large areas of roof glazing to compensate for the lack of available light from two sides.
