2006 - 2009
At Connaught Gardens PTE’s own development of seven family townhouses for private sale has reinvented the London terraced house, providing high quality four-bedroom homes on a very tight site.
The ingenious plan and cross section exploits a steeply sloping site to include a living room which is entered at ground level but opens out onto high level views, a generous family room and kitchen opening out onto a private garden, and a large secret roof terrace: so every home has two spacious and entirely separate living areas and outdoor spaces for recreation.
There are two bedroom floors: the attic floor is built into the roofspace, fitting four floors into what looks like a three-storey house, and makes our model townhouse blend discreetly into the existing urban context. The pitched roof also disguises the terrace which effectively sits in the ridge of the roof with clerestory windows which give additional light to the attic bedrooms.
The garden elevation is faced with staggered cedar shingles, responding to its prominent hillside elevation.
The whole terrace also sold successfully in 2009 – and won the 2010 Housing Design Award for the perfect home plan.
