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 ha 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.
