Landscaping works to stunning new-build private residence

SHH Architects, described as "the go-to practice for the ultimate in residential projects", have designed a stunning new-build house in north London.

Their brief was to create "a spacious, contemporary family home of an exceptional architectural design quality, which will provide privacy, be in harmony with its surroundings, and enhance the character of the Highgate Conservation Area". The scheme is designed to stand over 2.5 floors, with a mix of large, dramatic spaces for high-impact arrival and entertaining, as well as a number of smaller, more cosy and contained spaces for everyday family use. The principal ground floor rooms link to 4.5m-high south-facing doors, which open completely onto an outdoor colonnaded terrace, which in turn links to an 18m x 5m inside/outside swimming pool. A curling stainless steel water chute, running directly down from the children’s bedrooms on the left-hand side of the house to the pool, is a major feature of the scheme.

Working closely with award-winning garden designer Kate Gould Gardens, MJ Abbott Limited were contracted by their long-standing client to carry out shaping, drainage and landscaping works around this spacious, contemporary family home.

The scope of works included:

  • Cut & fill earthworks to level the main lawn areas
  • Installation of the land drainage system
  • Trenching for garden lighting cables
  • Importation of topsoil and placement through the woodland area
  • Installation of a high quality formal lawn area
  • Installation of hardwood deck around the swimming pool area
  • Design and installation of a hardwood deck around the water slide
  • Grow in maintenance.

Our client is absolutely delighted with the end result, which perfectly complements the stunning architecture of the residence.
