The exterior of Zog House in North London
The modest contemporary house conceals a radical core
The house totals 176 square metres, containing three bedrooms, a kitchen, living room and study, as well as three external terraces and a self-contained one-bedroom flat.
Groves Natcheva worked with a German system of prefabricated concrete panels to create an intricate series of interlocking interior spaces.
The result is a set of spaces that flow both horizontally and vertically.
Inside, the concrete work has been left largely unadorned, paired with naked plaster and subtle colour accents to stress the flow of space, from the high stairwell all the way up to the rooflights, with views down and across into the basement.
The main shell of the house took just four weeks to slot together.
