Planning permission for ex-Arsenal star Patrick Vieira’s family home has been approved by Camden Council.
The scheme will see a 1990’s three-storey building in Hampstead north-west London be replaced with a new project by Marek Wojciechowski Architects.
The approved scheme specs include a four-storey building, excavation of a new 287 sq m basement. The design also includes double-height voids and sky-lit stairwells connecting living spaces at all levels, which open out on to a series of external terraces and gardens.
The practice said, “The façade treatment was conceived as a ‘gilded cage’ set in front of muted black brickwork, providing solar shading and privacy from neighbouring properties, whilst allowing natural light to flood into the building.”
Approving the proposal, Camden council’s decision welcomes the development of a high quality and sustainable building to the area.
