Upalong – Private House, Barnet

  • Budget: £200,000
  • Status: Completed 2004

This project was for private clients to create a link between an existing period property and a separate indoor swimming pool in the garden. The design incorporated the intermediate space between the house and pool, originally an under-used north facing patio, to create a flowing space sub-divided notionally rather than physically with changes in level, floor finish, and ceiling effects/lighting. The whole was at the same time unified by a simple continuous glazing system facing south down the garden and heavily shaded by a deeply overhanging lead clad eaves projection.
