Butterfly House, Southwark

A new house on a former garage site

We have designed a new two bedroom house in Southwark on a former garage site. The design incorporates a green butterfly roof which references the strong rhythm of London butterfly roofs in the area. The green butterfly roof floats over the existing London stock brick perimeter walls, and hovers above a new brick central core constructed of Staffordshire blue brick. The green roof provides positive visual amenity to surrounding properties. The house has split levels to make the most of the small site and to provide generous heights in the main living space and master bedroom. The intension is that this new home is a sensitive addition to the Thorburn Square conservation area.
