Kew House, Kew, Surrey

Situated a stone's throw from Kew Gardens, this family house replaced a derelict Victorian stable and garages formerly on the site. The full extent of the site was excavated to form a large basement. The house itself is made up of two gabled weathering steel shells on either side of the site. A glazed link between them encloses a courtyard. The weathering steel is a structural and waterproof shell, like the hull of an upturned boat. The basement space will allow the client to engage in his passion for building wooden boats. 

Completed 2014.
