Bravura House is a student accommodation project for the Amar-Frances Foster-Jenkins Trust to transform a substantial detached Arts & Craft detached house in the Mapesbury Conservation Area of Northwest London into high quality accommodation for post-graduate students. From the outset the brief for the house was to create a home for the post graduate students that went beyond the often sterile and cramped conditions of some typical student accommodation. It was key to bring a sense of community to the house whilst also respecting the needs of an individual’s space. The plan contains 7 generously sized student rooms with integrated private bathrooms combined with good-sized shared living areas. A mezzanine workspace has been integrated into the designs so that the students have the option of working in their rooms or using the shared space when they feel like having some company. This area sits above the dining space and maintains a visual connection to the kitchen through the internal windows. Changes in level are used to create connections to the newly landscape garden and outside terrace space.
