Coupdeville were commissioned to design a contemporary London Villa for a site on the prestigious Avenue Road, north of Regents Park, London.
The site is currently occupied by a 1940s property and extensive gardens and the proposal looks to increase the floor area to 15000 sq ft.
Planning consent was obtained in 2011 for this extensive home, and approval gained from the Ayre Estate.
The monolithic white façade is chiselled away to form voids for lightwells and glazing and creates an impression that the building is balancing on the site.
The top floor is set back and expressed in a different material to tie in with the surrounding roofscapes.
The design includes an internal/ external pool and underground parking, and within its programme which includes two basement levels.
