1A EARL'S COURT SQUARE

Plays with plan, volume, light and relationship to the external environment to give a remarkable perception of space

London RIBA Regional Award 2019

Limited by planning to a single storey above ground, this house is built down to maximise the footprint. The rendered garden wall of the neighbouring building has been extended; the clerestory that emerges above is the only suggestion that there might be a modern insertion behind. The house plays with plan, volume, light and relationship to the external environment to give a remarkable perception of space. In-situ cast concrete structure forms the walls, ceilings, floors and columns. The control of how the materials come together is impressive – as is the overall sense of calm and tranquillity imbued by the house.
