St Augustine House, London

The new owners of the St Augustine townhouse close to Camden Square wished to reconfigure certain aspects to better meet the needs of their family. Square Feet Architects created two study/work areas – one a raised, ground-floor glass and brown zinc cube; the other, a garden room clad in black zinc. It also completely renovated the master bedroom suite, with a new ensuite and joinery-clad dressing room, which enjoys views over the city.

Ground Floor – A large open plan kitchen/living space was created for all the family to gather. Generous glazed doors opened onto a newly formed garden patio which lends itself to inside outside entertaining.

Garden – Tucked away at the rear of the landscaped garden is a free standing zinc clad home office formed to provide a quiet, private space away from the main house. With its own patio space it delivers an additional entertaining area.

First Floor – On the first floor a fresh space was formed to deliver an additional office area. It offers glorious views over the garden and beyond. Glazed at three points within the room, the daylight streams in to create a peaceful working environment.

Second Floor – Working your way up the stairs passing the detailed design of the backlit handrails winding their way up the staircase, the main suite has be reconfigured to offer a luxurious hotel experience. Bespoke wardrobes and an oversized emerald green velvet padded headboard were designed with decadent style. The opulence of the room is competed with a balcony providing views over the London skyline.

Set within the Camden Square Conservation Area, materials were key. So we chose patinated brown zinc for the raised ground-floor extension, which is sympathetic in colour to the rear elevation and London stock brick. For the study in the garden, we chose black zinc as being more ‘stealth’-like, which seemed appropriate.
