16a Kings Grove by Duggan Morris Architects

[STEPHEN LAWRENCE PRIZE] A taut, exemplary response to the development of a landlocked site

This intelligent house in south-east London is a taut, exemplary response to the development of a landlocked site. Reached by a narrow lane, the site is contained by back gardens.

Demonstrating a highly disciplined attention to detail in the design and the immaculate quality of the construction, all fitting-out responds absolutely to the brick module of the enclosure. A simple palette of materials is employed: exposed brickwork, oak storage wall panels, stairs and flooring and dark-stained timber-framed bespoke glazing. There is a playful use of brass in the glazing trim and the taps and more play in the pink, flesh-coloured shower interiors.
