Set within the Kew Green Conservation area of south-west London, this four bedroom family house is formed of two prefabricated weathering steel volumes inserted behind a retained nineteenth century stable wall.
The layout is informal; rich with incidental spaces and unexpected light sources. A delicate glazed circulation link reveals the contrast between a rustic exterior and refined interior. Split into two wings, the simple plan makes the most of a constrained site and responds to the living patterns of the young family. Kew House was an experimental project, driven by the architect's and client's shared interest in a 'kit-of-parts' approach, prefabrication, and the self-build possibilities emerging from the digital fabrication.
