House for an Architect

  • 23 Dec

Our project to provide a substantial extension to a semi-detached Arts and Crafts house in Hills Avenue was designed for and with a close friend and architect.  The dynamics of the relationship allowed ideas to be tested and details to be refined in the context of an inspiring and challenging architectural discourse.  Exacting building tolerances and precise detailing was unfamiliar territory for the contractor.  The apparent simplicity of the finished work belies the efforts of the team involved with the construction.

“Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably will not themselves be realised……. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die.”  Daniel Burnham
