You wouldn’t believe this beautiful new home was once an unsightly block of abandoned garages. Hidden behind a large detached house in Balham that PAD were converting into flats with a local developer, we saw an opportunity to develop these unused garages into a self contained contemporary two bedroomed home providing additional housing in the much sought after borough of Wandsworth.
The new dwelling retains the form and scale of the original building but by creating a partial basement PAD were able to insert a double height space opening onto a secluded lightwell garden with a glazed wall flooding the interior with natural light.
A mezzanine floor takes advantage of this double height space creating drama and interest in an otherwise modest dwelling.
We’ve even been able to create two private outdoor spaces, ready for those fast approaching summer BBQs!
This desirable new home is nestled next to Tooting Bec Common and got snapped up as soon as it went on the market!
