Covert House, London

A new family home for architects Deborah Saunt and David Hills of DSDHA. The site, within a conservation area in Clapham Old Town, was subject to strict planning constraints, limiting the new house to a single-storey above ground within a small footprint. The solution was to partially lower the structure and use concrete in carefully carved forms. Internally, many of the high quality polished concrete finishes remain exposed, including on the bespoke white concrete cantilevered staircase.

Completed 2014.
