MKM Contracts – From Swatragh to the Savoy
“At the start I didn’t concern myself much with re- branding and the latest marketing slang, I focussed on the work,” he explained. “So, I didn’t pay much heed to the new name until I noticed some weird glances and a few sniggers, and it was explained to me that ‘pony and trap’ means ‘crap’ in Cockney rhyming slang.” So, how do you go from feeling like Del Trotter after a bad day down the market, to smoothing out the walls in some of the most iconic buildings in London?

Muswell Hill, 2017
Located in the affluent and desired town of Muswell Hill in North London, a luxurious N10 development has been completed, comprising of 22 new deluxe apartments, 6 houses and a community centre. The development sits astride one of the capital’s highest hills and benefits from outstanding views of the city, as well as access to magnificent open spaces nearby including Alexandra Palace Park and Highgate Woods.
The mixed-use development, designed by London based architects ph+, provides a contemporary twist on traditional Edwardian housing for London developers Jamm Living. As a result of the architect’s detailed analysis of the local context, the steeply stepped residential buildings have been organised into three distinct sections, that follow the contours of the land and are broken up in an alternating pattern of brick and glazed elements that change as the development descends the hill.
The first part of the project comprises of a conversion of an existing building into 8 new flats, with a community and commercial space below. In the central part of the scheme, 6 new modular houses now step down the hill, and are defined by golden-lined bays of varying tones that form terraces for the occupants.
In the final part of the project, a horizontal block contains 14 apartments and features a distinct sawtooth profile at the rear, designed to extend views for residents and required to prevent overlooking of the neighbouring gardens.
Muswell Hill features carefully selected materials that have been utilised in sensitive and pragmatic ways. The eminence of the local context is encapsulated in the high-quality detailing of the facing brickwork; a raking monk pattern that provides a contemporary aesthetic, cascading easily with the stepping profile. MKM contracts worked closely with the main contractors Gilbert Ash on the projects plastering and floor screeding.
