TOLLINGTON

Three beautifully crafted homes have transformed a former backland garage site for new families in Finsbury Park, London. Showing how a small and refined material palette, designed with love and care, can enrich the sites that need it most.

Finsbury Park, London.

Tollington comprises 3 2/3 bedroom homes over two floors in a former back-land garage site.  Working with Artform Group and Scenesmith, Dowen Farmer has developed and detailed Tollington with love, and thanks to Scene Smith, promises to create outstanding interiors, blurring the lines on interior and exterior. Situated between Highgate and Stoke Newington, the scheme is just five minutes’ walk from the Finsbury Park station.

Oversized bay windows maximise the amount of natural light which can permeate into the sunken living spaces and master bedrooms of the proposal. On ground floor these bays offer families a snug to enjoy life from whilst on first, feathered glass offers inhabitants their much needed privacy.

Material detailing has been at the forefront of the design process throughout the scheme in order to create a holistic design which integrates the internal spaces with its external façade. Externally, the front and back facades of the scheme have been detailed with different brick bonds in order to create playful elevations which respond to the context. Internally, the fair-face blockwork walls have been left bare to create a warm tone of honesty within.
