From the street, the 700m2 Long House appears as a secret dwelling, largely screened from the outside world. To the garden side the large glazed elevations open out toward the green spaces dissolving the boundary between inside and out. The form of the house has been determined by careful integration of the new masses with the form of the existing adjoining houses, with the scale dropping from 3 storeys, to a single storey for both the garden wing and the connecting element between the main house, the guest wing and garage block.
Materials are stock brickwork, render and zinc.
The house has won many awards has been published worldwide.
