Completed on a relatively modest budget, this new house in a suburban conservation area in west Ealing replaces an unsightly garage and general dumping ground. The site was acquired and developed by a client living in a neighbouring property, who wanted to improve the streetscape and make a place to live in the future.

The somewhat constrained plot generated a massing of simple volumes and a rich, split-level interior arrangement. Cavity walls are made of load-bearing brick, with the upper floors and roof made from LVL timber joists and the lower floors of in-situ cast concrete. With the structure left exposed internally, the architects have created a subtle and harmonious connection between light, well-proportioned rooms and brick-walled courtyard gardens on two levels.
