42 Donne Place, London
After purchasing a fantastic modernist estate in the country, our client approached us to design and build a 1 bedroom house on an infill site, 2.8m wide to use as his pied de terre during the week. A larger than life character, somewhat eclectic and having accumulated a modest sculpture collection we had to find a design that matched his character.
A great deal of time was invested with the client in exploring materials, experimenting with finishes, studying his art work and soon a style emerged which had a masculine, industrial and also pop art quality. What turned out to be a left over plot has been transformed into a light filled, slick and contemporary house.
