The sun was shining in North London today with a beautiful blue sky, so we took a trip to Enfield to check up on, and photograph, one of our local projects that's nearing completion: two new, high-quality family homes in Second Avenue, Enfield, Hertfordshire, that will be completed in the next few weeks.

Experience Counts

This development is a great example of how Simon Kaufman Architects are not simply there for the concept stage, we work with our clients to see projects through from the initial brief to final successful completion – with all the twists and turns that can happen along the way.

We understand how to design and to deliver, with a wealth of successful experience with Local Authority planning departments; and practical site knowledge for construction.

And we take immense care to make sure our early stage design and planning drawings are fully fit for building regulations and construction purposes, as well as looking great - a surprisingly rare skill! And we're on hand to support and advise our clients at every step of the process.

Maximising the Development Potential of Small Urban Plots

Our project at  Second Avenue in Enfield involved subdividing a large rear garden plot of a locally historic house, and providing two 3-bedroom family homes in the same space.

These carefully designed houses are an attractive addition to the local area and a great example of our expertise in maximising the potential of small urban sites. Our sensitive architectural approach to the historic context meant that these new homes blend with the surrounding period properties. We ensured the new houses match the height, character, and style of the local surroundings, while being mindful of the client's budget and the need for a cost-effective construction process.

It's also vitally important to us that small urban sites like this can be utilised to the maximum advantage, as it means that we're delivering new family homes to meet Capital's housing needs and without encroaching on precious green spaces.

Designed with Families in Mind

At Simon Kaufman Architects we create buildings that are attractive, practical, and sustainable. The floorplans provide generous living areas, and the sunlit bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms to provide excellent spaces for family life, all designed to Nationally Described Space Standards and the latest GLA London Plan residential Design Guidance. These new Enfield homes have been designed with cost-effective materials so budget costs are low but are also built to the latest Building Regulations, to ensure they are both energy-efficient and sustainable for the future.  

We're confident that these two new family homes in Enfield which make best use of a small urban site will make a very positive contribution to the local area. And, we're extremely happy that they showcase Simon Kaufman Architects' commitment to thoughtful, practical design and project management expertise, sustainable solutions, and meeting the ever-growing need for high-quality family housing in London.
