Cottesmore Gardens

London, England

This five-storey family house in the conservation area of Cottesmore Gardens in Kensington for Stanhope Gate Developments, replaces an existing dilapidated terrace. The design follows the plan typical of such terrace houses with a narrow nine-metre frontage. Laterally the building is organised in two equal bays; a sensible and time-honoured solution that groups circulation and ancillary spaces along the narrow bay thus freeing the remainder of the frontage for reception rooms.
