The locally listed building is currently in derelict state and will be transformed in a new hidden gem, delivering new apartments set in a tranquil and carefully landscaped garden.

The proposed development is made up of 30 residential units set within a landscaped garden designed by Christopher Bradley Hole.

Oak Lodge, a renovated locally-listed 1930’s villa is refurbished as the centrepiece of the proposals. The social and architectural ideals of the arts and crafts movement, which are powerfully expressed in the adjacent Hampstead Garden Suburb, were important references for the scheme which seeks to establish a strong sense of community on the site.

Three new wings of accommodation, together with the restored villa, frame a multi-level landscape. Each wing is shaped by its internal planning and each offers a distinct engagement with its landscaped setting.
