A handcrafted single-family house built on a small infill plot. Built from brick and timber the project uses inventive planning, exposed structure and bespoke details to make the best use of this micro site.
(max visitors 20)
The project is conceived as a series of carefully articulated rooms connected by a sculptural top lit staircase and oblique views. By carefully choreographing exposed structure in each room, the project aims to create a narrative of the making which is richly detailed and highly legible. As a result each space is embodied with an atmosphere directly tied to the construction stripped of the familiar language of white plasterboard walls.
Externally the building mass is a resultant form of the physical and planning constraints of the project. This form is then veiled in a fine timber screen to create a piece of urban sculpture which references gardens, sheds, and fences which are common to to this area of London.
