Nash Baker Architects
If it’s worth saving, you restore. Of course, if it’s a case like this semi-detached London home from the early 19th century, you go back to the drawing board. By 2011, this house had been changed beyond recognition, with two far-reaching courtyards that served as a garden. With planning consent, Nash Baker Architects demolished two existing properties on the site, kept the historic facade of the 19th century house, and designed a larger luxurious single-family home.
Two elements of the house are linked by a relaxing outdoor space designed by award winning garden designer Luciano Giubbilei. The calm city oasis features restrained planting, comfortable outdoor furniture, and a lovely reflective pool.
