Private Residence - Brockwell Park, London, SE24

Architect: Zac Monro Architects
Contractor: Rebuild (London) Limited
Building Control: BBS Building Control Limited

Private Residence, London

This former vicarage has been comprehensively 're-modelled'. The existing derelict house was stripped back to its main structure and all windows replaced and an external insulated dressing applied. A single storey extension was erected to the rear of the property with low-carbon construction and glazing to benefit from solar heat gain. The conversion allowed for an exceptional design, more in keeping with the natural context of the adjoining Brockwell Park, to a standard deserving of its location.

The architectural model for this conversion was the nearby Brockwell Lido which sits in a similar context. The profile of the building was lowered and adapted to appear more horizontal, with emphasis on simpler volumes The simplicity of the Architectural style allows the building to sit within the park in a subtle and sympathetic manner. Its elevations are made of simple rectangular volumes that reduce the scale of the whole, and the careful detailing underlies this.

The primary aim of the conversion was to mitigate the environmental impact of the existing house, without having to entirely demolish and re-build it. Keeping the existing structure greatly reduces the impact of the construction process whilst still allowing the architect to upgrade the home to conserve fuel and power. Over-cladding with low-carbon insulation, render, tiles and timber slats have greatly improved the thermal performance of the house, as has replacing all windows with ethically produced, high performance double glazed aluminium framed units (aluminium chosen as it is easily recycled). The green roof to the building also has well documented environmental benefits in terms of heat-loss and rainwater retention, as well as the obvious benefits in protecting biodiversity.
