Arkwright Road Garden Houses by Square Feet Architects

Arkwright Road Garden Houses is a project designed by Square Feet Architects. Two large houses on Arkwright Road in Hampstead, since converted into flats, have large rear gardens which back onto a rear lane, leading to some garages and other newer houses that have sprung up over the years.

In these back gardens are a selection of mature cherry, hazel and oak trees – all protected and within the ‘RedFrog’ Conservation Area.

The owners were looking to create new homes for their children, setting up home in expensive London.

After a process of engagement with the local residents, planners, tree officers and conservation team we attained planning permission for two new-build houses on the rear gardens, sensitively sited harmoniously between, in and amongst the trees.
