The site is a narrow mews, formerly 35 lock-up garages and workshops located between the busy Prince of Wales Road and the attractive St Leonard’s Square in Kentish Town. These were developed into a private community of 15 residential mews houses set in a delightful cobbled mews. Each individual property was finished to an award winning standard. The development won an RIBA award of small development of the year.
The narrow width of the original design needed an innovative solution to address overlooking issues as the mews houses sit closely together, only 3.6m apart: each house has an angled facade designed to provide total privacy.
A simple palate of high quality materials creates a high quality urban space in a high density development.
