This elegant contemporary house tucked in behind a high garden wall impressed all the judges. The architect has responded well to a series of challenging constraints which included overlooking to and from neighbours, single aspect bedrooms against the party wall, the proximity of sensitive listed buildings and mature trees. Accommodation is separated into two wings with the taller bedroom element aligned with the historic 6-9 Canonbury Place buildings of the adjacent school. The result is a very well thought out, faultlessly executed new home.
