Dartmouth Park

Pardon Chambers Architects as Architects

Dartmouth Park is a whole house refurbishment in a conservation area in North London. Along with an extended kitchen dining living space at the garden level, a new, whole floor, master suite was created at the first floor with remodelled additional bedrooms and bathrooms on the top floor.

 

What the client says:

"Rather than simply refurbish our house, Roman created a series of solutions that have transformed it. His brief was to improve the connection between the interior and the garden, and the end result has surpassed our expectations.

 

The ensuing quality of light and the views outside provide a dynamic link when moving throughout the building. The plan we eventually finalised has improved flow, and given the house a relaxed yet considered vibe which feels calm and uplifting. Roman’s meticulous attention to detail - particularly in resolving junctions between materials and levels - combined with serious rigour on site, have resulted in a beautiful and intelligently resolved space.

 

Niggles inevitably associated with a large project were met with nimble thinking alongside a collaborative and creative approach to problem solving. Newly added elements were carefully conceived to sit harmoniously alongside existing details, always sensitively respecting the original period without resorting to pastiche. Instead of a clumsily ‘bolted on’ addition, the finished extension is bespoke, subtle and elegantly integrated. As such, the planning applications that Roman submitted on our behalf were successfully passed: No mean feat in a conservation area."
