Harvey Road by Erbar Mattes
Harvey Road is a minimal residence located in London, England, designed by Erbar Mattes. Situated on a quiet residential street in Crouch End, the house is the home of a family with two children. The former ground floor layout was biased towards the front of the house, resulting in undefined open spaces, mainly oriented towards the street and a neighboring infill extension. The re-structured and enlarged floor plan inverts this situation by refocusing the attention towards the garden. The deep plan was maximized by creating two complimentary living spaces an active rear garden room and a calm, enclosed drawing room whilst providing ancillary functions in the darker central area of the plan.
