A new six-storey brick clad development of 33 dual-aspect apartments in Hampstead has been inspired by the area’s mansion block architecture.
Designed by Sergison Bates, 79 Fitzjohn’s Avenue was conceived as a contemporary version of the Hampstead townscape, with two interlocking villas connected by a ground floor entrance lobby.
The façade features a series of projecting brick and precast bays in round and chamfered forms. Arts and Crafts-style detailing on the entrance lobby reflects the surrounding properties. European Building Materials explored the various brick options with the architects and supplied the Olde English Grey facing brick from Ibstock Brick.
Designed to meet the needs of older residents, the fully accessible apartments provide a range of unit sizes and flexible space provisions, complemented by a range of communal facilities and allocated spaces in the underground car park.
