House in a Walled Garden London 2009–

The house is situated in a London suburb, close to the historic heart of the village, in a cluster of buildings around the church of St.Mary’s Barnes. The design fuses two traditions: a Scandinavian Modern low-lying architecture of monopitch roofs with that of the courtyard house. Inside, the schism is literally manifest by a split-level plan. The variety of hardscapes and landscapes created outside the house all enrich the internal spaces of the house.
