Copse Hill House is located in Wimbledon, south-west London, and replaces a two-storey dwelling dating from 1964. The 0.055 hectare site lies on the north side of Copse Hill and adjoins the Westside Lawn Tennis Club that wraps its east and north boundaries and within the Wool Road Conservation Area. The proposed dwelling generally occupies the footprint of the existing house, aligning with the adjoining properties facing onto Copse Hill. The garden behind the house is north-facing, so the design introduces two elements to allow south light to enter the rear of the house – a long, top-lit entrance hall (atrium) and a small contained courtyard at first floor that allows light to enter the living space via a double-height space above the kitchen. The proposal utilises a carefully limited palette of well detailed, robust, low maintenance and sustainable materials, using a high-quality, pale buff European-format facing brick above a dark-grey base that is also used for the rear chimney, anchoring the house to the site. The set back attic storey is clad in standing seam bronze-patinated copper. Planning consent was granted in March 2018.
