Kew House

Set within the Kew Green Conservation Area, this four bedroom family house is formed of two weathering steel volumes inserted behind a nineteenth century stable wall. The deep orange tones of the weathering steel and the perforations within the skin echo the dappled light and autumnal palette of nearby Kew Gardens. The layout is informal and split across two wings, making the most of a constrained site and responding to the living patterns of the young family. The unusual build process included off-site and digital fabrication and kit of parts construction.
