North Park : A family house
This discerning client still feels at home in the house designed for his family in the Eltham Palace Conservation Area. Set discreetly behind a mature yew tree, the simple geometry is layered elegantly away from the road. Service elements are to the north, while the more private spaces to the south bleed through generous windows and sliding doors into the shade of the orchard. Despite the contemporary form and simple structure, the careful use of traditional handmade bricks and Portland stone means the house sits easily within its environment. So much so, it won a Civic Trust Award.
