Ben Smith Architecture


This landmark planning permission for a new build house alongside the Bedford Park Conservation Area replaces a compromised and structurally defective house. The new layout includes a spacious basement with games room and gym, and bright living spaces at ground level with carefully calibrated daylight from all sides and above. The contemporary rear extension and basement are orientated around a dramatic central four-storey staircase. The new build construction was central to fulfilling a key aspect of the clients’ brief to filter air and limit pollutants.
