Dartmouth House replaces an Edwardian Nurses' Home, since converted in a
single dwelling, with 6 new apartments: one 4 bedroom flat, two 2 beds,

floors, walls and roof, to be built by Eurban, with a self-supporting
brick rainscreen of hand-made Danish creamy-white bricks. Conceived of

All of the flats have generous balconies. Heating will be provided via PV cells pellet-burning stoves placed into brick chimneys, echoing the distinctive profile of near-by Chiswick House: an architecture of garden walls and brick chimneys - our homage to Lutyens and the tradition of substantial English semi-rural, suburban villas.
Planning consent was granted by Hounslow Council in January 2017. Construction will commence in summer 2017 and be complete by late summer 2018.
