Hazel Lane: Contemporary Mews Houses

This scheme places three contemporary dwellings onto a plot located at the intersection between the back gardens of some 20 dwellings. The building geometry, orientation and size are dictated by the site constraints, issues of privacy and overshadowing.
The core project concept was to maximize the available site area of each house without impacting on the amenity of adjoining dwellings. The garden is an integral part of the overall design, an interlocking mirror image of the house plan. By ‘introverting’ the garden area into the house the site area is maximized while minimizing impact on adjoining dwellings.
The ‘openness and transparency’ of the south and west facades at ground floor level juxtapose sharply with the ‘closed’ treatment of the solid brick planes of the east and north facades enclosing these inward looking sculptural volumes. The uncompromising outward facades project a determination to ensure the privacy of those inside and of their neighbors.
Shortlisted for Mies Van Der Rohe award.
