79 Fitzjohns Avenue

The site is a cornerstone and surrounded by a selection of conservation areas, bordering Fitzjohns and Hampstead Village centre itself each with its own transitional qualities. Two massing volumes are proposed to replace the current sprawling single volume of the exsting brutalist building.Towards the front (street) side, these align themselves with their neighbours then adjust to provide focus at the corner of the site. The spaces between the villas emphasise their individual scale as large houses and establish an architectural context of individual houses set back from the street rather than a streetscape of linked (terrace) houses.
