76A Newington Green Road is an infill building that unites 2 period terraces on a narrow site in North London. The project is the result of a genuine social and sustainable approach by the client and design team.The client had lived in the neighbouring property for 15 years but faced relocation, following a decision by the landlord to sell off a portion of their housing stock at the start of 2009. The family saw potential to develop a building on the narrow yard that separated the terrace and appointed architects Amenity Space to design a highly sustainable family dwelling.The architects won planning permission in May 2009 with a design that subtly references the proportions, materiality and texture of the neighbouring buildings and number 73 bus. The layout has been very carefully considered to fully maximise the extermely narrow plot of land. During the planning process, the Urban Design Officer at Islington Council remarked ‘(....it to be) the best design of an infill development in the borough’.
