Stephen Lawrence Prize: Tin House by Henning Stummel Architects

  • Comment

The 216m² home of architect Henning Stummel had to contend with overlooking on all sides of its tightly constrained site on a former breaker’s yard in Shepherd’s Bush

PROJECT DATAPLANS • SECTIONS

The response was a low and inward-looking courtyard surrounded by a cluster of single-storey pavilions.

Each of these bright orange, tin-clad pavilions contains a single room that slopes on all four sides to a steeply pitched roof with an angled skylight flooding the space below with natural light.

Internally the orange colour of the exterior cladding is expressed on some of the internal walls, the kitchen island, the study’s long desk, and on the doors.

At the heart of the project a tall chimney is expressed, while at one end a two-storey block contains two bedrooms, a kitchen and a shower room that can be accessed separately to form a guest maisonette.
