LINEAR HOUSE, HIGHGATE
Winner: Sustainability - Downland Prize 2008
Linear House is a modern insertion into the old fabric of Highgate Village. Discreetly located in the Highgate Ridge Conservation Area, it is essentially a single storey house, cut into and integrated with its steeply sloping site. It is a part of the landscape.
Although sleek in design and material the contemporary architecture, both internally and externally, takes its reference from the classical in its symmetry, proportion and drama.
The house is energy efficient by virtue of its design, fabric and the environmental features, which are incorporated into the site. Construction commenced on site in July 2005 and the house was successfully completed and occupied in August 2006
