Lonsdale Road, Notting Hill
Lex McMillan Architects were commissioned to take over the development of a lower ground floor apartment in the heart of Notting Hill. The initial works had been started and then abandoned due to the complex nature of the build, leaving an empty site with a lack of correct permissions.
We entered a planning application to extend further and to create a floating pavilion roof complete with wild-flower meadow leading to a sunken private garden. The judicious use of roof lights and clearstory windows draw light into what was previously a dark basement to create a bright and airy urban home.
