This house in South London gives the architect and his wife an ordered yet flexible hierarchy of spaces and a place of tranquillity in their busy lives. The site fronts a residential road to the north, with gardens and a golf course to the south. Fencing, grass, gravel and timber decking provide a series of thresholds before a recessed door. The Portland stone wall slides from under a bay window to fill the width of the site. Once inside the layering continues and the building fabric becomes increasingly transparent. The south elevation is heavily glazed, the more-public north elevation has smaller punched holes through a solid fabric. The structural engineer was Price and Myers, services engineer was Total Environment, QS was Jackson Coles and the main contractor was Luck. The cost was £145,000.
