Squire and Partners in collaboration with Globalhome Estates and Andy Sturgeon have completed a prestigious residential project in the Netherhall and Fitzjohns Conservation area of Hampstead, London.

Alton House at 59 Netherhall Gardens comprises the restoration of an existing period building and construction of new extensions to provide eight high quality residential homes ranging from 2 to 4 bedrooms.

The façade of the existing neglected period building has been fully restored and retained, preserving and enhancing the character of the local conservation area and bringing life back to the property. New extensions facing the rear of the site have been carefully designed to blend into the traditional character of the retained façade.

Internal layouts have been subdivided into three distinct vertical elements to respond to the existing building fabric, while a newly excavated lower ground floor substantially increases the living space. Internally, generously proportioned apartments benefit from contemporary open plan layouts and high performance glazing, while retaining striking period features.

Three extensive private gardens running the full depth of the site feature varying levels of hardwood decking and native plants, designed in collaboration with Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal winner Andy Sturgeon.
