Squashed-on Park

Local blogger Richard Elliot has toured the local buildings featured in this year's London Open House weekend, including End House in Crofton Park, The Capitol in Forest Hill, Seager Distillery in Deptford, de Monchaux Studio in the Brockley Conservation Area and Lewisham Arthouse on Lewisham Way.

End House is a neat example of how to squeeze more space out of residential streets. He writes:

My first stop was End House in Manwood Road. The compact three bedroom house was added to the end of a terrace when someone sold part of their garden to a developer. A mecca to minimalism the house has a wedge shape, being narrower at the front than the rear. The architects have produced a fantastic design and the house didn't feel like it contained awkward angles despite none of the rooms being square.
