Pocket House

Developer: Private

Project Status: Completed

Location: London, UK

The proposal presents a forward thinking innovative design for a change of use from industrial to residential property which is stand alone in its integrity, and can stand apart from the quite bland and mundane surrounding properties.

The design takes into consideration the building footprint size, and as such has initiated the provision of a full building height rear extension, which will create a larger building footprint for the proposed development, and that will allow the adjacent premises, currently being used as class A5, to have a separate entrance to divide the two uses efficiently and to allow both uses to work well with a separate entrance by establishing a boundary line along the owned and shared land.

There is a requirement to add an additional storey to the premises to enable the single dwelling unit to work efficiently and effectively, and this additional storey will increase the area of the single dwelling unit as a whole and enable a comfortable living space within the building footprint.
