The Focus House by Bere Architects

June 30, 2008

You might have seen and read about the Focus House in north London before, it has been widely reported on because it’s so unique being squeezed in between a couple of Victorian terrace homes.  From the street, the house looks impossibly thin, but it’s actually a wedge shaped house that gets wider the further in to the house you go.  The entrance is 2.8 metres (9.2 feet) wide, expanding to 7 metres (23 feet) wide at the back.  The house further contrasts with those around it by abandoning the typical brick and instead going with grey zinc cladding.

Designed by Bere Architects, the house has won a number of awards for both its architecture and the many environmentally friendly features that were used. You can read more about the house ? here.

The house is for sale at £899,950 through The Modern House Estate Agents ? here.
