A new build 2 bedroom house that addresses the housing crisis of London and the south-east. The client was unable to afford to buy an apartment due to the unaffordable cost of the housing market. The site of a double garage was adjoining the family house was demolished and the new house created. The site was split in two, both properties share a driveway and have separate gardens. The site is extremely tight and new house nestles between two existing houses of a diverse style and acts as a counterpoint with its limited palette of dark monochrome materials.
