Highgate House

by SHH

Architect SHH turned planning restrictions into an advantage when it came to creating this family’s dream home. 

Building your own home has obvious advantages – you get to choose a layout and design that’s perfectly tailored to the needs of you and your family. That was the case when a family originally from South Africa approached architecture practice SHH, asking it to build a new home on the site of a detached house they had bought in Highgate, north London.

Moving to find more space, the family wanted a three-storey home in which they could live more ‘laterally’, with living spaces situated across two floors only (along with guest and staff accommodation on the third floor).
