London Residence Designed For An Elderly Couple

House on Sandall Road 1 London Residence Designed For An Elderly Couple

We received photos of the House on Sandall Road – a single family residence located in Ealing, London, on a back land site. Completed in 2010 by Evolve Architecture, this project was designed for the clients’ elderly parents at the end of their garden. Situated in a conservation area near a nature reserve, the white volume seen from the street hides a collection of rooms and details that will surely catch your attention. Here is how the architects describe the residential project: “The garden elevations are clad in timber fitting in with the surroundings. From the hill beyond the view is of the sedum roof covering the house.  The south elevation has a deep overhang to shade the large glazed doors and windows in summer and provide a ‘porch’ for accessibility to the garden.

By exploiting the natural slope of the site the lower floor is well lit large windows. The direct  garden access and separation from the ground floor provides an independent space for a future carer. It is designed specifically for the current occupiers and their needs but  could well adapt to family living . For now the occupiers enjoy the view of their grandchildren from their kitchen table.  The house is of timber framed construction built with sustainability in mind and suited to a modest budget. Materials used include Sheepswool insulation, Western Red Cedar treated with linseed oil, Sedum Green roof, Marmoleum and solid Maple timber flooring, Gabion boxes filled with recycled bricks, re-used railway sleepers, recycled plastic paving grid, water butts.
