In a highly sensitive Conservation Area in the heart of Hampstead, we undertook a radical rescue project of this 1930s home designed by the celebrated architect Oliver Hill.
The work involved removal of illiterate extensions, including an ill-conceived second floor, partial rebuilding of the original house, with major repairs and the addition of two further storeys to provide more accommodation commensurate with the site value and location. The top floor, or ‘lantern’, is believed to be the highest domestic room in London.
