A new build single bedroom residence that overcomes a narrow site previously used as off street parking
Category: New Build
Edgarley is a new build residence that slots between two existing Edwardian buildings, humble to the street yet dynamic from within.
A multiple pitched roof line is drawn from the varied roof forms in the area. The form harnesses daylight and views out to create a joyous and spatially exciting experience that detracts from the long and narrow footprint.
An internal courtyard is a central moment within the internal layout, distinguishing living areas from the sleeping area and filling the interior with sunlight and the scent of fragrant plants.
To the rear, views out to the mature trees of Broomfield Park are captured with folding doors that allow the living area to flow into the garden beyond.
The building is wrapped in white timber batten cladding that opens with windows and doors, allowing user control for levels of ventilation and privacy. Akin in scale and finish to the existing timber gates and garage it replaces, the building is a subtle and suprising residence.
