HAMPSTEAD WELCOMES ITS VERY OWN TREE HOUSE
A London-based firm, Stanton Williams Architects, has completed building a house in north London’s Fitzroy Park that gives the illusion of a treehouse. It has a timber and stone exterior with a green roof, with the entrance being reached by crossing a bridge. The threestorey Fitzroy House has open balconies facing Hampstead Heath. Stanton Williams told Dezeen magazine, “painted in dark grey, the timber brings extra texture and colour to the limestone on the exterior façade.” Stanton Williams are also responsible for projects such as the Stirling Prize-winning Sainsbury Laboratory.
The house includes four bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, herringbone-patterned flooring and a private balcony sheltered by the overhanging roof.
