Ditton Hill House

We have been commissioned to design a new build detached house in the London suburb of Surbiton, Surrey. Externally, the house reinterprets the diverse local vernacular in an elegant steel frame with a slurried brick infill to form a simple monolithic building. The solidity and privacy of the road facing front elevation is juxtaposed by a more transparent garden-facing rear elevation. Internally, the house is planned as a series of interconnected 'enfilade' spaces, which create a generous sense of space whilst efficiently minimising circulation area.
