The site for this house is located in the centre of an Edwardian block near Palmerston Park. The site is extreme at 53 meters long and 8.3 meters wide with access by car from a lane at one narrow end.



The concept of the house was dictated by the site and brief requirements and the inevitable choice of brick as the main building material; giving a materiality capable of determining the image of the house. A massive solid, impacted upon by the restrictions on scale and height and the need to minimise the impact on its genteel surroundings.
