Durand Gardens 

An invited competition by Lambeth & Southwark Housing Association, sought to provide the largest possible infill on the highly constrained grounds of their existing property in the Stockwell Park Conservation Area. The site context is characterised by 19th century villas with mature gardens, evoking a sylvan setting.

Elegant ‘tines’ concealed the low-slung communal rooms of the house, while combing sensitively into the underside of a sycamore crown. A green roof sown with wildflowers, attracts biodiverse flora and fauna, enhancing the sylvan character.
