This new five bedroom house was commissioned by a client – a family with four daughters – who well knew the work of Knox Bhavan Architects. The practice had converted a house for them in the Dulwich area some years ago, but as the family reached school age, more room was needed.

This new five bedroom house was commissioned by a client, a family with four daughters, who well knew the work of Knox Bhavan Architects. The practice had converted a house for them in the Dulwich area some years ago, but as the family reached school age, more room was needed.

A site was acquired in Dulwich Village, within a conservation area, and half way between Soane’s Dulwich Picture Gallery and Barry’s Dulwich College. The new house, a model of innovative planning and sensuous use of materials, is a showcase for the use of bespoke joinery.
