FRETTON TO BUILD A HOME FIT FOR ANISH

NEWS IN PICTURES

Tony Fretton Architects has designed this four-bedroom house for world-famous artist Anish Kapoor and his family. The 600m 2 home in Chelsea, west London, will extend beneath an existing apartment building along a tight plot to a small alley at the rear. At the heart of the 50m-long scheme is a star-shaped courtyard and garden to bring light into the lounge, dining room and large, 'workmanlike' kitchen on the open ground floor. A stone staircase will lead up to a study and bedroom - separated by a south-facing courtyard - and there are plans for another bedroom, bathroom and dressing room towards the back of the house. As well as polished stainless-steel metalwork, the project will feature Hopton Wood limestone and Mandale Fossil - stones used in British Modernist sculpture.

Kapoor hopes to move into the house, which has already been awarded planning consent, in spring 2007.
