HOUSE FOR A MUSICIAN 1998-2001
‘Liberated’ space in the city for living and working. A light steel frame opens up the interior, while a double-height slot adjacent to the glass screen gives one the sensation of ‘floating’ over the long mature garden. Activity in the family kitchen centres on an insitu concrete counter anchored to terra firma. Entering the ‘outdoor room’ is like stepping onto the boards of a stage - the frameless glass reflecting and projecting the movie of everyday life. The screen is open-able in a variety of combinations, and there are orange blinds to re-frame the views. Sometimes the Loquat tree appears to be advancing into the house - the effect can be magical. It’s easy to forget that you are in the heart of London.
