Contemporary houses by Nicolas Tye Architects
Located in the centre of Radlett – an exclusive area with large housing plots – Greystones are two identical, detached, flat roofed and very contemporary houses designed by Nicolas Tye Architects.
Replacing a single bungalow with two generous houses
The site previously housed a single bungalow of no historical or architectural note. As a result, the owners wanted to demolish the existing house and replace it with two generous houses, one of which to become their new house, the other to sell on.
Each house is approximately 600 sqm spread over three floors, which negotiate the changing levels of the site.
As such, the first floor from the front approach leads you through to the rear garden level.
The highly contemporary properties respond to the surroundings utilising white render, but in simple modernist forms with timber cladding and elegant glazing systems, which create a delicate blend of privacy and views.
