Oliver Rehm

"House Joydon is a three-story family home on the edge of London. Nestled amongst lush greenery, the design of the house is distinctive, yet sympathetic to the architectural style of the area."

The open-plan kitchen and dining/living space on the ground floor are designed with high-quality, selected materials. The spacious double height entrance hall and skylight in the stairwell allow plenty of daylight into the interior.

From street level, the house has two storeys. Around the back, however, a basement floor is revealed with a home cinema and fitness studio. The family also chose to install a spa area including a sauna and steam bath, with direct access to the garden and views of greenery.

An elegant staircase with integrated lights leads to the upper floor with four bedrooms, some with ensuite bathrooms and balconies. The master bedroom also has a separate dressing room. Thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, all four bedrooms have a spacious and uncluttered feel.

One of a kind

This chic townhouse harmonises with the other houses on the quiet, residential street, yet has a distinctive design that sets it apart. The garage has been cleverly integrated into the corpus of the house.

Lightweight construction

The wooden timber construct eliminates the need for structural steel. Grey window frames, dark clay roof tiles and a porch roof create a contemporary look that blends with the natural surroundings.
