Dartmouth Park is a district of north London in the London Borough of Camden, on the slope of the hill that rises up to Highgate from Kentish Town. On its west side, it borders Parliament Hill Fields, notable for its views of the London skyline.Save this picture!SectionThe clients owned the upper maisonette and had lived there for several years. When their downstairs neighbour decided to leave, they were able to agree the purchase of the ground floor flat and appoint architects, De Rosee Sa, to re-instate the building back to its original arrangement as a three-storey townhouse.Save this picture!© Alexander James PhotographyThere were a few challenges; primarily how to increase the proportions to give the house a sense of grandeur and generosity of space. The first priority was to tackle a low floor to ceiling height on the ground floor, made more difficult by an unsympathetic level change between the front and rear of the building. De Rosee Sa overcame this by moving the level change further towards the front, using the front as a cloakroom area, framing the bay window with tongue and groove cupboards either side and a window bench.Save this picture!© Alexander James PhotographyThe extra height gained in the middle of the ground floor facilitated the proportions to locate the kitchen in the middle, with an adjacent dining area. The living room is located towards the rear, with a Defra Approved wood burning stove and new glazing towards the garden. A long skylight brings lights deep into the plan. Joinery around the fireplace gives the living area additional detail and atmosphere.Save this picture!© Alexander James PhotographyThe extension into the rear garden was rebuilt and widened to match the depth and shape of the neighbouring roof pitch but using Blue Staffordshire brick to give it a more contemporary treatment with crisp architectural details. A glass sliding door and window seat under a large window addresses the new patio and garden. Cava limestone was used for the patio and steps up to the lawn area. De Rosee Sa also designed the western red cedar clad garden sheds.Save this picture!© Alexander James PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow less10 Excellent Examples of Works That Adopt the Use of ContainersMiscChauveau – 26 Social Dwellings / ODILE+GUZY architectesSelected Projects Share Form Structural Design Projects Photographs:  Alexander James Photography Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year:  “COPY” Area:  168 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeDe Rosee SaOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLondonEnglandUnited KingdomPublished on November 09, 2017Cite: “Blue House / De Rosee Sa” 09 Nov 2017.
