This new build house, adjacent to the Thames, is currently on site, due for completion in winter 2021.
The house will replace an existing dwelling that has long since been dwarfed by the development either side. The project aims to provide views to the river whilst working within the difficult constraints of the site in terms of privacy and overlooking.
The form of the house mediates between the adjacent building sites, and also provides a south facing inclined roof on to which solar renewable technologies will be integrated. To make this integration visually seamless, the photovoltaic panels and solar thermal panels will be recessed into the skin of the building to finish exactly flush with the fibre cement cladding of the roof and walls.
