We’re developing a new four-storey building of eight self-contained flats and below-ground parking for 12 cars. The site in Barnet, North London, was previously occupied by a petrol station and car wash, with a four-storey building behind.
The new scheme incorporates a mix of quality units with more floor space than is average. The design also proposes green roofs across all levels, lending weight to the project’s overall sustainability; green roofs are understood to have a positive impact on a building’s energy consumption by improving the roof’s thermal performance. A further living green wall system enhances the thermal properties of the envelope.
The proposal will enhance the local streetscape with a textured grey-brick front elevation that blends in with the colour and materiality of adjoining buildings. Sliding louvred sunshades with large gaps conduct light and air around the spaces.
