London. A classic/contemporary brick housing complex

pH+ realised a residential complex on a hillside north of London, featuring carefully selected materials that are used in sensitive and pragmatic ways.

pH+ has completed a contemporary housing scheme that follows the sloping topography of Muswell Hill, north of London. Divided into three separate sections, Pinnacle N10 is the product of a detailed analysis of the local Edwardian context. Pinnacle N10 features carefully selected materials that are used in sensitive and pragmatic ways.

The first section of the project is a conversion of an existing building into eight new flats, with a community and commercial space below. In the latter and central part of the scheme, six new modular houses now step down the hill, broken up by a series of deep recesses that form terraces for the occupants. These reveals are lined with metal panels that change colour for each property and the palette continues onto interior details, providing each home with its own identity. In the third and final part of the development, a horizontal block contains 14 apartments and features a distinct sawtooth profile at the rear, designed to extend views for residents and required to prevent overlooking of the neighbouring gardens.
