Structural Steel Design Award, Merit

Kew House, Richmond, Surrey | Piercy & Co

Set within the Kew Gardens conservation area of south-west London, this four bedroom family house is formed of two prefabricated weathering steel volumes inserted behind a retained 19th Century stable wall. 

Judges' comments:
"Through it use of weathering steel as the primary structural and visual material, and the ingenious use of the site, this private house can claim to enhance the conservation area. The prefabrication of the roof shells, a technique more familiar on large projects, is a powerful illustration of the potential of steelwork in domestic building. 
The project merits attention for the potential of steelwork in domestic architecture."
