Garden House

Garden House is a new home, studio and gallery for costume-maker duo Whitaker Malem. The building replaces a single-storey workshop the client built in the mid-1990s on a tight north-facing site behind Victorian terraced housing in Hackney’s de Beauvoir Conservation area. The new building maximises space and natural light whilst protecting adjacent residential amenity with a roof devised as three different pitches strategically punctuated by glazing. Outside space is achieved with the addition of stepped stainless steel profiles to the roof, planted with sedum and heather.
