Black have secured permission to remodel a Georgian terrace cottage property in Tooting, to create a contemporary dwelling that will target net zero carbon.
The project continues our exploration of how domestic scale projects can be enhanced to address the climate change emergency and form part of the wider green recovery programme for the UK. As with other private residential schemes completed by the practice, the design responds to the specific needs of the client, creating spaces that reflect how the occupant will use spaces throughout the day and bringing natural light deep into the plan.
A mezzanine workspace looks out over a new wildflower green roof and connects to the ground floor with a central light well. Working from home wellbeing ideas that were conceived with the client before lockdown restriction were placed on the wider population.
