A residential development on a confined site in south London, the proposal creates a micro-terrace of family homes, each configured around its own private courtyard garden.

Historically used as a dairy due to its proximity a now culverted waterway, this backland site has more recently been used as a car garage. The architecture takes its cues from the surrounding buildings – using London stock brick and charred timber siding as cladding.

In addition to the mews development, a new gatehouse building mimics its setting on a Victorian terrace in a conservation area.
